The Masked Bandit
aka Hummingbird Moth
1 1/2 -2 inches in size.
The speedy moth can be seen by a close observer these days-- sipping on the bee balm.
I was very excited to capture these images and decided to post them as a trio. I will try again as I would like to perfect this means of capturing insects who NEVER sit still!
I am sorry to have missed your images today; my excuse--a medical appointment in the near by city. And I do appreciate your attention to the Nile Crane--Thank you!
Special thanks are due to Joline and Edmund for UA's for the Spicebush butterfly!
