A Visit to the Ladies' Rest Room

A lady at camp came running to get the naturalist - that's me - to report an amazing moth or butterfly in the rest room. I came with my camera and found this beautiful sphinx moth primping in front of the mirror. When it became aware of me and my camera it dropped down into the sink and provided me with several different views. These are also known as hummingbird moths as they can hover in front of their flowers of choice with such a rapid wing-beat that they look a lot like hummingbirds.
