With a 2" wingspan, adults are often mistaken for hummingbirds or bees.
My first spotting of a Hummingbird moth. I was watching some butterflies feeding on wild bergamot when I noticed the humminbird moth in the mix. I was lucky to get a couple of decent shots before it flew away. I noticed later when I looked at the photos that I also caught a carpenter bee in 2 of the frames.
