Hummingbird hawk-moth

Macroglossum stellatarum


Flies very fast and reminds one of a humming bird. It was very difficult to take a picture of this rare moth I have never seen In Pakistan before. P.S. love these blue flowers


Spotted on one of the highest peak in Murree. According to Wikipedia, this pretty moth is visible in warmer areas.


One of prettiest moth I have ever seen!
