Re: Bee-Fly

Definitely a Hummingbird Hawk-moth.

Beeflies are around for a short season in the spring whereas the moths only appear in summer.

The beefly tongue is not nearly as long and is held out straight ahead and those are not beefly antennae.

Mark, that's a very cool "tongue" it has for collecting nectar.

But it's not a tongue but a straw. Must have been where the bent drinking straw design came from.
