Nature Walk: White-lined Sphinx
The white-lined sphinx is a large moth and sometimes referred to as a hummingbird moth. They are generally common in late summer and are often seen feeding on garden flowers. Like many species in nature, they are beautifully designed with line, pattern and color. To generate heat in the cool of an evening, they often quiver their wings, just as we might shiver to generate heat when we are cold.
