Hummingbird moth, stock and california poppy

This one was shot at lawrence garden lahore. I am not sure what it is but it seems to be a hummingbird moth. Though we do not have hummingbirds here but sunbirds. Lovely sight though.
update: This is some species of clearwing hummingbird moth.

 Stock is the most fragrant annual of spring. And bees love them too. This one shot at my terrace.
This bee seems to be too involved in california poppy. Again captured on my terrace.

I love the moth. They are way too fast for me. Our Butterfly Bush (Buddleia davidii) seems to attract them.

That's a hoverfly, not a bee - but still good to have around the garden, since their larvae love to eat phids!

Wonderful details and color in these macros!

Lovely shots, we have hummingbird moths to our garden every year. They love the butterfly bush.
