Check out these amazing moths. They're commonly called Hummingbird Moths, but I think they might be even bigger than hummingbirds! And yes, I used to know their official names but I'm too slack to look it up right now.
They were in my neighbor's yard this past summer. I planted those plants (hedychium coronarium, commonly known as butterfly ginger) when we were still roommates. Apparently the moths really love them because Heather told me that she continued to see them most evenings if she looked.
Hummingbird moths are so cool!
