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.

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

  9. That’s a hoverfly, not a bee – but still good to have around the garden, since their larvae love to eat phids!
