Arcata

Photos by Sid Berg  (White-Lined Sphinx Moth):

 

"I am an non-professional photographer residing near Eureka, California whom happened on an insect resembling a hummingbird feeding on some flowers near my back porch. I grabbed my Canon EOS Digital and begin firing away. The result was several, mostly out of focus shots of this creature I nicknamed a Humbug, until after  this afternoons research I determined is a White Sphinx Moth. According to the distribution map, it is not common in Humboldt County, California, and I thought the information may be of some use to someone. "
