This photo of Mexico looks like paradise to me: beach, sunset, flora and fauna.

Our photo contributor managed to capture a great silhouette of a white-lined sphynx moth (Hyles lineata), which is also known as a hummingbird moth, while it flitted among aloe vera blooms. She writes that this photo was taken at Baja California, Punta Gorda, east of San Jose del Cabo.
