Hummingbird Moth

In the US, in the summer, on our back deck were pots and pots of flowers.  These flowers attracted hummingbirds.  The hummingbirds would fight to feed at these flowers.  Our dog did not like them at all.  Here we do not have hummingbirds.  Let me be clear, I miss hummingbirds but do not miss squirrels.


But we do have what I have always called hummingbird moths.  I just happened to catch this fellow as he worked over the geraniums.
