Hummingbird Moth

St. Augustine, FL (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: The rain moved in about 3:30P.M., but it did not keep this hummingbird moth from the evening visit to my flowers. Between the rain drops and the approaching darkness... I snapped many shots, but only one was good. Hope you enjoy!

SVLover, Biskitten, gardner48197, & Dosiedoats,
Thanks for the great comments. The blue flowers (plumbago) bloom most of the year here in Florida, and the hummingbird moth does its part to keep the flowers pollinated. The moths only make a visit very late in the day. Most of the time it is too dark to catch a photo of them. Often a gecko will hide in the vegetation in hopes they can capture the moth as the insect makes visits to each bloom.

About Denalidaze


I have loved photography since I was quite young. My mother had an old box camera and I was always excited to see the magical pictures when she had them developed. She mailed them off and I would check the mail each day to see if they had returned. As I grew, the cameras in my life also grew. My husband and I love to travel. During our 45 years of marriage, we have never bought each other Christmas, birthday, or anniversary presents. Travel each year was our gift to the other. Of course with travel comes pictures. I have been to 47 states and many foreign countries. On our first trip to Europe, we purchased a 35 mm Canon camera in Germany. I Took MANY picture and slides. I used a lot of my photographs in the classroom (30 years) and brought the wonders of the world to my students. My first digital camera was a Sony Mavica. Wow, digital discovery was like eating food with no calories. What a way to celebrate life! On our many visits to Alaska, it is not unusual for me to take 60 GB of pictures. Now, I seldom leave the house without my camera. Yes, I have loads of pictures, but I am always looking for more pictures to take, and ways to improve my skills. I do retain copyright on ALL my photos. Please ASK before using my pictures.Thanks in advance for asking my permission.Create your own visitor map free counter for your website
