I photographed this Hummingbird Moth near the Ouachita National Forest here in Arkansas.

The Hummingbird Moth is an amazing insect that has the unique ability to hover in mid-air and fly like a hummingbird. It is also known for its long proboscis, which it uses to feed on nectar from flowers. This species of moth has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its beauty and uniqueness. Not only does it provide a great photo opportunity for nature enthusiasts, but its presence also helps pollinate plants, making it an important part of the ecosystem. The Hummingbird Moth is a fascinating creature that deserves more recognition and appreciation.
