African Humming bird moth (Macroglossum trochilus) Sphingidae

You have to give me an “A” for perseverance!! I keep on trying to get good shots of these and come up with something that is “almost”. LOL!!
The African Hummingbird moth (Macroglossum Trochilus) is very small and feed on tubular flowers. They belong to the Hawk Moth family.
