Hummingbird Moth

Ok. In this photo is a sphynx or hummingbird moth…can you see it? They come out each night at dusk and drink the nectar from the flowers in our yard…

About Terri C Pilarski

I am an Episcopal priest serving a delightfully progressive, interesting, creative congregation. I have been married more than half my life to the same man. We have two grown children, plus two dogs and two cats, although the number of four legged household members changes from time to time. I love to garden, knit, read, and play on Facebook or with my blog. I have been a practitioner of daily meditation since I was nineteen. I practice yoga five days a week and walk every where I am able too.

    No, they are not small…and when outside they are really awesome – but even though they won’t hurt I wouldn’t want them fying around my apartment…however my cats would have a field day catching them…
