Backyard Summertime Nature in New Jersey.
First sighting of a Clearwing Hummingbird Moth this year. Last year I saw them on the Rhododendron flowers, but those shrubs were damaged by snow and early spring storms. This year they appear to like the same Zinnia blooms that have also attracted a Monarch Butterfly. They also like the Wild Bergamot flowers. Individual images in the slide show can be viewed here.
