21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
White-lined Hummingbird Moth

Taking images of a Hummingbird was a challenge and loads of fun. I wanted all my images to be in the natural surrounding without using artificial nectars or bait. That was when a hummingbird moth showed up. I thought I was seeing baby hummingbirds. This little guy makes hummingbirds a slow flyer.
