Butterfly or what...

This little miraculous creature with orange spots on its wings was attracted to the garden by the Phlox. It looks like a butterfly, but I’m not sure it is.

In fact, on its forehead it has a very elegant, curved sucker that is almost as long as the animal itself. It looks very much like a small tropical bird. I am really happy of its visit. The Phlox season just begins, so I hope I will often see it.
