Theme insect–

​The white-lined sphinx moth is sometimes called the hummingbird moth because of its bird-like size and flight pattern. It hovers around flowers sipping nectar all over Tucson, even in the daylight. The species has a broad range across Central and North America, and hordes of caterpillars will sometimes damage crops and gardens. The caterpillars were often skewered and roasted for food by Native Americans.
