Happy National Pollinator Week!
A White-lined Sphinx Moth (Hyles lineata) rests on the sand near the trail at the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area.
This moth is more commonly known as a “Hummingbird moth” due to the speed at which it flaps its wings and the way it hovers over flowers when it feeds.
