I have two photos for today’s Winged Wednesday. The first photo is a White-line sphinx moth (Hyles lineata) and the second is a Water-Boatman. The White-lined sphinx moth hoovers over flowers much like a hummingbird earning the nick-name, Hummingbird moth.” The second photo is the common Water Boatman. Regrettably, his wings are not visible. The boatman was captured in my pond with a net, rinsed with distilled water a few times then placed in a wine glass with filtered distilled water for the photograph. Boatman bugs make the jerking movements during swimming with their long, hairy and oar-like hind legs. This Boatman is up-side-down. Water Boatman are true bugs, they have long spiked mouth parts for puncturing and sucking prey. I don’t recommend handling these bugs because their bite is as painful as a bee sting.
