Far too Flitty to Focus

While I was outside, snapping a few pictures of flowers between showers…

this Hummingbird Moth showed up.

These are extremely cool creatures, that have a bee like body with hummingbird mannerisms.

They are far too flitty to get in clear focus, but too fascinating not to share!

I hope he keeps showing up and enjoying the blossoms.

      Last year was my first time seeing one. They have probably been around and I just failed to notice them without a camera in hand…you do see things differently with a lens. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow! Amazing Kathy! Such a fascinating moth – love the patterns on its wings and the fuzziness of its body. And your flowers are stunning too! ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒผ
