Meet the Beautiful Hummingbird Moth

The first time we spotted the Hummingbird Moth, we didn't know what it was. It took a few videos, photos, a little time and research to learn this beautiful creature's name and something about its habits. Following is a brief introduction.

According to the Watershed Institute, Hummingbird moths move and fly just like hummingbirds and are a fun visitor to the garden during the summer months.

Planting native plants and avoiding the use of pesticides on your property can help manage storm water while encouraging pollinators to visit.
