"Flies like a hummingbird...." but really is a moth.

WE talked about flight in class this week as well as Lepidopterans. 

While most moths are night flyers, some grace us with their presence in the day too, and especially in the summer and fall of 2013 in the case of the White Lined Sphinx  moth whose numbers exploded across Chicago for some reason. This is a video of one in Andersonville in August, busy eating up some Hosta nectar...
