I have hawkmoths on the brain, so here's another. Still trying to wing up a kickstarter to fund my NYC trip to paint and photograph the bugs in person.
Casein, 8x6, Original Available. Payment Plans Available.

This is beautiful. :3 I love these guys, where can you go see them in NYC?

I think I've seen these. I thought one was a humming bird, but it's wings weren't flapping fast enough and had that curled tube-mouth. had the coloration of a bee and I think it tried to attack me when I got close. Glad I know what I saw now!

Oooh, I used to catch these all the time back in the day! Awesome little insects, they are.

Beautiful! I love all the little fluffy bits. I have some fond memories of trying to catch these guys when they'd visit the autumn olive bushes flowering near my childhood home.
