Education

The first summer I was here, I saw what I thought was a hummingbird and took several shots before going “Eeewwww! That’s not a hummingbird!” Just in case you need educating like I did, this is some kind of sphinx moth. They flit among the flowers and hover like hummingbirds as they sip the nectar from the plants. They are pollinators, so I like them, but still get a bit grossed out by them.
