Nectar sipping White-lined Sphinx Moth

Check out these pics of the same White-lined Sphinx Moth as I posted on last night. It has it's probiscus extended to sip nectar from a Sunset Hyssop (Agastache rupestris), which is native to the southwest (including northern New Mexico, which is not too distant from Canon City).

Sunset Hyssop is considered to be a good plant for attracting hummingbirds that also enjoy it's nectar. White-lined Sphinx Moth

I think these pics also provide good views of this moth's face. You can learn more about these interesting moths here. SeEtta
