Summer and the Heat. Sweltering temperatures and the humidity seem to bring things to a much slower pace. The Summer flowers are in full bloom and on this day, a surprise visitor. Thinking this was a Hummingbird, grabbing my camera quickly, I was excited to photograph it... except it wasn't a Hummingbird. It is a ClearWing Hummingbird Moth.
The ClearWing Hummingbird Moth stayed for quite awhile feeding on each purple bloom of the Butterfly Bush and then flew off with great speed. I look forward to it's next visit - camera ready.
The original post was published in 2016, but was requested to bring this image back, so, as we close July and look forward to August, take a look around and enjoy more of the little things.
Thank you for following along. Til the next post.
