Hummingbird Hawk Moth and Giant Swallowtail

Hello September! I took the weekend off from blogging and just enjoyed time with Bob and time with friends. Saturday while Bob and I were in the garden I saw a small Giant Swallowtail butterfly on the Lantana.

As I was taking these photos another visitor arrived. Much harder to capture photos of as they are just so darn fast darting around to each flower. Luck was on my side though as I was able to capture a couple of photos and videos.

A Hummingbird Hawk Moth.

See how fast he/she is?! Not the best photos or videos in the world but they are the best I’ve been able to capture…so far. Now I’m on a mission to capture even better ones.

Have you ever seen one?
