Hummingbird Clearwing Moth
SmugMug Daily Link
I took quite a few shots of Hummingbird Clearwing Moths on the butterfly bushes at Donnie's house yesterday. I deleted more than my average amount from the shots. So many were misses, blurry, overexposed, or grainy. I picked the daily I think because I like the proboscis and the hard to get head-on view. I also like the wing detail in the shot below.
There were several silver-spotted skippers on the bush too.
This five-lined skink was on the back step as I went into the house. Usually I don't have a chance to catch these quick guys. I was glad this one posed for me!
From the night before, Boston Butt with homemade BBQ sauce, green beans, and homemade coleslaw. Yum!
