On a very hot Quebec day, as I stood under the burning sun in a field of milkweed, surrounded by bees and wasps, my camera was steaming. All this discomfort just to get a photo of my favourite insect, the hummingbird moth. I didn’t really mind, it was such a rare treat to see this special little insect, there to sip nectar from one of its favourite flowers.
