Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I don’t really know what to do on this site. I came across this little guy today. I am not sure if this is a butterfly or hummingbird. He was buzzing around my flowers at 5pm. He wasn’t easily spooked and spent about 4 minutes on the hanging basket. He really liked the million bells and petunias. Hopping someone can tell me what it is. I’m not sure if it is related to the pandemic but we have noticed more birds and butterflies in our yard this summer.
