Caption: Hummingbird moth (Hyles lineata) caterpillar feeding on brown-eyed primrose (Chylismia claviformis) plant. The hummingbird moth (or white-lined sphinx) is native to the Americas, from Central America through the US and into parts of Canada. Its rapid wing movement resembles a hummingbird in flight when it hovers over flowers while feeding. Photographed in California, USA.
