Don’t call him hummingbird.

Hmm, I thought I had put these up already. Apparently not. . You love them, right? As you should. They’re sort of fancy-pants. This is a White-lined Sphinx () unless someone tells me otherwise. Not really the easiest photo subject. These shots aren’t all that sharp but I like ’em anyway. My attention span was lacking this day (as it often is) so I didn’t spend a ton of time trying to get a winner. This particular was fixated on one or two flowers and wasn’t moving around as much as the they normally do, making a few better photo ops. I’m a big of sphinx moths. They make me happy.

These are beautiful Jill and rather poetic. I love the little Clouded or Orange Sulphur companion too. We only have the exquisite Hemaris thysbe or Clearwing moth here. A delightful post.
