The Hummingbird Moth moves very much like the hummingbird. Lee thought it was a Bee Flyer when she first saw it, and here I’ve been calling it the Humming-bee.
Hummingbird Moths grow up to two inches long. They have an olive-green body with red bands across their abdomen. Tufts of hairs from the end of the abdomen look a lot like feathers. The wings of this moth are mostly clear, sometimes with some red near the body.
