You’ll Never Guess What I Saw


Snowberry_clearwing_HemarisI came home for lunch the other day and saw this incredible creature feeding on the blue columbines.  It was the size of a hummingbird, nowhere near as quick, but still fast-moving. Its golden body glowed in the sunlight.  It turns out it’s a hummingbird moth. Truly amazing.

You can learn more about them here, thanks to the USDA. Hope I see one again!
