What's That Insect?

Pie Pie's project this week was to identify this insect.


We discovered it outside at the butterfly sanctuary. First they thought it was a bee, but I could tell it was not a bee. Then we thought it was a hummingbird, but it was too small. We knew it was a moth or butterfly, but weren't sure what kind. We went on the Internet and found it right away! It's a Hummingbird Clearwing Moth. It was really neat to see and discover what type of creature it is.

In this picture you can actually see it's tongue coming out to drink.

I also wanted to share how big Playful and Scaredy are getting!  Almost time for them to turn into chrysalises.

I hope you enjoyed this little bit of Science in your day!
