Last week I was standing in front of the windows in our walkout basement, trying to get a cell signal so I could make a call. I looked outside and spotted this hummingbird moth feeding on the phlox in the garden, right in front of the window. I ran to my office and grabbed my camera, and ran for the door. Then I remembered that my camera card was still in the computer and hustled back to get it. Happily, the busy little moth was still there.
I have seen these amazing creatures many times in the past, but never when I had my camera in hand, so I was very excited to have a chance to get some photos. They move very quickly and it was a challenge to follow it around the garden.
While I was shooting Lisa called, (who I had been trying to reach before seeing the moth), and I had to give up the chase. It flew off soon after, but I've been keeping an eye out ever since.
