Visit from a Sphinx Moth - Way Cool !!!!!





This little guy came to visit yesterday evening! He made a stop at each & every one of the petunias in the flower bed! He was here for over an hour feeding from the flowers and never minded me one bit as he fed on the nectar. What fortitude, determination, and fearlessness this little guy showed as he worked his way through the blossoms! I enjoyed hanging out with him while he was here. What an awesome little creature he was to see here in the woods of Skanee !!!!!

It's a very pretty insect. Thanks for sharing the picture. How nice that you had so many pansy blooms to tempt it!

Pansies are long gone here in SC, USA. He's certainly a cutie!

Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog. It seems that you and Charlene both have a knack for getting great photos of flying insects. Not me!! LOL.

We have these around here too! Aren't they the neatest! Hard to believe we have something you do in such a totally different environment. I enjoyed looking at your blog and envy you the beautiful country you live in. I have made my own little oasis here in the desert but would love to live where trees grow naturally! Lol!
