Humming birds on the honeysuckle vine
There were a lot of humming birds on the honeysuckle vine in our back yard so I got a few pictures.
The neighbors cat was watching them also. Darn cats.Attachment 639172-------Attachment 639173Attachment 639174Attachment 639175

I believe that is a moth, not sure of it's scientific name but it gathers nectar from various flowers. It usually is active late evenings and at night. Thanks for sharing your photo's!

Those little critters have a name, not sure but I want to say it's hummingbird moth. I've had one humming around in my flower bed, most unusual looking lil thing. You got some good shots!!

Thanks River Rat.
I'll go online to try to figure out what they are.

They are white-lined sphinx hummingbird moths.
