Hummingbird Moth (Hemaris thysbe) on Pickerelweed (Pontederia cordata)

Hummingbird Moth (Hemaris thysbe) on Pickerelweed (Pontederia cordata).     I really like both the moth and the plant.    Pickerelweed is a water plant that grows on the edges of my frog ponds.   The moth has several common names……   hummingbird moth, clear wing moth.   To me, it looks like a flying crawfish.
