It wasn't too long ago that I heard someone talk about a hummingbird moth. I had never seen one before. In fact, I didn't realize such a creature existed. It was good that someone had randomly talked about them to me. If not, I would not have figured out what I was looking at. I saw a very definite moth body. The wings were moving like a hummingbirds. And it looked like the creature had a straw coming out of it's beak. And my goodness, was it long!
I stood and watched for a few minutes as it went about it's business. Then I realized that my phone wan't too far away. So I carefully stepped away and when I came back I was glad to see that it was still there. It suddenly became aware of me and I was only able to get one picture. I stood very still but the flowers it chose were too far for a good picture.
As it flew away from the garden, I decided to go back to my weeding.
