"I live in a small town called Hopedale, Massachusetts. One evening I was sitting out on my front porch and noticed these things that appeared to be Hummingbirds flying around my flowers. I was able to capture a shot of them which I have included in this email. I had never seen one of these before. I posted this image on another site and have gotten many replies. It seems that this Moth or something similar are being spotted in many parts of the country and people are saying the same thing that they have never seen one."
