Adult stages of hornworms are heavy-bodied, strong flying insects known as sphinx or hawk moths. However, some local species are popularly known as "hummingbird moths". These moths have a very mild resemblance to hummingbirds in flight while they similarly feed from deep-lobed flowers. The white lined sphinx is the species most commonly observed in this habit and is usually most active during late afternoon and dusk.
