Description

I had never seen or heard of a sphynx moth until the day before I took this shot. When I saw my first one, the day before in Boulder, I thought it was a hummingbird. Then, I was lucky enough to see this one at the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. This moth hovers and darts just like a hummingbird, and it's hard to believe that it's an insect.
