I saw this little fella out front last week and from further afar, he looked just like a baby hummingbird. But my dad told me about a hummingbird moth he'd seen years ago and suspected from my description that was what I had seen. And lo, and behold, the very next night, I was surfing on gardening blogs and I saw a beautiful picture of a hummingbird moth, and realized it was EXACTLY what I had seen. And amazing.
So, tonight when I was walking around surveying my little garden kingdom as I like to do, there were 2 of them out front. I raced inside, got my husband's camera and captured these shots. And, truly, aside from telling you my little story, all I really have to say, is: wow.
