This is the first clearwing hummiunbird moth I have seen this summer. I found it in what used to be my favourite Milkweed patch. i say" used to be" for two years ago the plants were all cut down in the fall! I was pretty excited this spring to see a renewal of what appeared would be the regrowth of this favourite milkweed patch. My disappointment was great when checking on the patch one day in early summer to see the plants all mown down again. Not all of them though for today I found a few blossoms among the greenery of a few plants continuing on. I haven't seen any Monarchs there though but I did see this clearwing moth there today. What a joy it was!
