Hummingbird Moth - Delightful Duo


Not by appointment do we meet delight Or joy; they heed not our expectancy; But round some corner of the streets of life they of a sudden greet us with a smile.

The first time I saw a Hummingbird Moth, I thought I had discovered some weird species! Lucky that you got 2 for 1!

Thanks Kerri, for sharing it.

Super-duper, and perfect. I so admire your skill.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Gosh, I've never seen one and you got two in one shot! Lucky girl. These are fascinating creatures to me.

Kelly said...

...I love these critters! The fellow on the right looks like a Snowberry Clearwing Hummingbird Moth. He has a little black mask, and that's what I always look for to ID them. Love how you got two in one photo! :-)

I have often wondered what these amazing creatures are called. Now I know!

Snappy Di said...

Love these guys... they have sort of clunky looking bodies but maneuver like hummingbirds although not as fast... Neat photo!

Mary said...

I like the way you are able to stop the wings! I took some photos of these recently but the wings are awlays a blur. These little critters are so interesting, but they sure move around quickly.

I had them in my garden this past summer also. At first I thought they were hummingbirds. I did a layout of them that I am going to post later today. I am really looking foward to spring! I always enjoy your quotes and photos, thanks!
