Body length estimated at about 4 cm. Behaved a lot like a miniature humming bird, flying from flower to flower to feed.
This specimen looked a little ragged, it had lots of bare spots on its body where the scales/fur had rubbed off. I'm not at all sure of the ID, perhaps it is a Hummingbird Hawk Moth that has lost the scales on its wings?
