Clearwing humming bird in Lawrence gardens

Here i am again with another edition of macro monday. Because of my coverage with annual spring flower show (see below post) i could not take much macros but still those i got were worth posting.

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.

    The first picture is surely a clearwing hummingbird moth, however not sure with exact species. Your picture confirms that hummingbird moths do exist in Lahore.

  4. Bugs make for the best models!

    Great shots!

    I remember the first time I saw a hummingbird moth. My mouth was wide open. I couldn’t figure out what I had just seen. Great pics.
