Pollinator power!

This is a beautiful hummingbird moth, which mimics the colors of a bee. Here I was lucky enough to capture the moth in mid flight enjoying a native plant, bee balm.

Proboscis

  

A Red Admiral butterfly dips his proboscis in my backyard Buddleja plant. I did not plant the butterfly bush, it grew there. Always include native plants (or let them grow) so native insects can thrive!
