Humming bird moth

We had a visitor tonight in the flowers out front.
The men folk out speaking to the end of the day.
I was called to capture a fast photo op.
Favor upon us!

Click on the image to enlarge.
this is a South American creature.
We are it's far northern range.
I have found two of the massive cocoons in my soil.
Sadly both were lost to the blade as it dug into the earth.
They are so amazing.
Now I tender the blade when I turn new earth to amend.


  1. Never heard of one of those.... Never seen one.... Thanks for sharing!

  2. He is still outside in your garden and I am sitting on your porch waiting for your return.......

    I think of you EVERY DAY!


Someone bless these seeds I sow...
