Moth thief

These guys are busy just before dawn (presumably earlier, too, but it's right before dawn that I'm out there). Hawk moths, too. (See earlier photo in my stream.) Note how this guy is sticking his tongue down in the hole in the corolla that some bee opened up. Nectar robbery: it's not just for bees.
