      Thank you! This is the first year I’ve gotten the opportunity to get so many shots. The iPhone tracks pretty well in video, so I took a lot of images yesterday.

    Great images and fantastic video. Coincidentally we were sitting having lunch and watching a Hummingbird Hawk moth on the zinnias in pots by the terrace when your post arrived.

      Not long. There were several and, of course, both on the fence side of this huge lantana and I couldn’t get close at first. Once one came over to my side I was able to get lots of images.

    So impressed with your photos and video, as these critters are fast moving! I’ve only seen one or two in my garden this year, which makes me a little sad.

      Thank you Tina! They really are fast. Hope you’ll begin seeing more in your own garden. The last couple weeks I’ve started seeing lots more butterflies and moths, but it varies wildly from day to day.

      Keep looking! I was outside for just 2 minutes before a downpour today and spotted what I think is a spicebush swallowtail. Wish I’d explored a few minutes earlier. Of course, you’re out in your garden all the time.

      Thanks Cathy. I searched today but no sign of one. I find it interesting how many times I see something at a particular moment and if I’d gone outside a few minutes later instead I’d have missed it altogether.
