Sometimes I don't even leave the yard.

Was a slow day so I got lunch and sat outside enjoying the sun and spied these great clearwing moths visiting my Phlox.

Hemarisside

Look at that proboscis, that's tongue for you Ann Coulter fans..**eg**.

Hemaris

I am guessing that this is Hemaris diffinis, recognizing the dangers of picture keying insects!

Also on the Phlox was this neat soldier fly (family Stratiomyidae).
