I've only seen these a few times. Tried to capture one the other day while working in garden, but I only had cell phone & could not see it for leave on manarda plants. They really are pretty, but move very fast. Thanks for sharing your picture.

Thank you, Friends. I'm not fond of ticks either, WeatherWise. I found one crawling on my neck the other evening but I didn't think I had been out in the weeds. Then remembered I had gone down into the trees on the north side of the pond to get a different view.

Nice! I think I have only seen one hummingbird moth this year. Of course, I am only out for a short time so does not mean they are not out and about. I have been chicken to go to butterfly bushes other than my own yard since I got a tick the other week - I guess walking through the grass in one of two yards to get to the bushes.

About Nikongranny


Old, retired with lots of time on my hands and a Nikon. Lucky for me, there is a park just north of town that provides me with migrating birds and sunsets. Since joining this site, I have a new appreciation for this scenic world we live in. I especially love the comments from so many great people on here.
