Wild Milkweed flower and a sphinx moth sometimes called a Hummingbird Moth captured on our farm in Tennessee.
From what I read the first flights of the Sphinx Month their wings have a touch of red then they become clear. So lucky me I got that touch of red. The smell of the milkweed is heavenly!

I remember the first time I ever saw a hummingbird moth...I screamed and ran from it as fast as I could...I thought that thing would sting me. Now I know better...LOL
Fabulous capture!
