Over a dozen were seen while walking through the oak woodlands and scrub this day.
This individual was eating a clam brought up from below Wharf II in Monterey.
I saw a Hummingbird Moth like this flitting from flower to flower at about 2:00 p.m. in my garden. Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me and haven't seen it again (yet!). Through the power of the internet, I put in "bumblebee moth" as that is what it looks like at first glance...and surprise, the search engine found it! Here is one of the sites I found it on: http://www.fs.fed.us/wildflowers/pollinators/pollinator-of-the-month/hummingbird_moth.shtml
The photograph is by Hugh Christy.
And here is another interesting website showing the stages of life of the Hummingbird Moth/Snowberry Clearwing Moth
Went out at about 3:30 and while standing by some valerian, the snowberry clearwing came back..and so I was able to get these photos!
Apologies for the crappy cell phone pics, it's all I had on me.
