Submitted by: Carol Boyce
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: At first, we thought it was a hummingbird. Only after getting a reasonable photo was I able to identify it as an insect. It was moving about the flowers just like a hummingbird. It was early evening, and the weather was partly cloudy with a temperature of around 18 degree Celsius.
