I was wondering what I was going to write about tonight, really without an inspiration. Andie was setting out the Halloween decorations (but that’s another post) and I went outside to see. In the plumbago outside the front door, was what first looked like a hummingbird, but turned out to be a moth.
It literally flitted from flower to flower like a hummingbird, and faster than I could easily follow with the camera. But you can see in these pictures that there are antennae, and no tail to speak of. We’ve seen them before, but I finally had the camera to get a reasonable shot.
There are full size photos of this interesting little critter here.
So, it’s Halloween, the kids have come for a while, but not as many as years past, and now, at 8:30, they’re pretty much slowed to a trickle. We’ll have candy to get rid of, and I hope it mostly goes to work with somebody that’s not me.
