Hummingbird hawk-moth

Hummingbird hawk-moth (Macroglossum stellatarum) at a wild radish (Raphanus sativus) flower in the Puente Hills, Los Angeles County, CA. I am told this is possibly the first report of this Old World species on the west coast of the U.S., that it may have flown across the Atlantic Ocean to get here.
