Walking around the house quickly to find something to post today, I notice a small white spot on a little Mesquite I just planted. The super macro setting on my Canon S5 revealed an alien creature 🙂
The butterflies and moths must have told each other about our Lantana because I’ve never seen so many show up! Yesterday the plants were covered with Painted Ladies and among them I saw this guy. Finally a chance to catch the color on the wings of this Sphinx moth.
When the yellow Lantana come into full bloom, I begin looking for Sphinx moths. Unfortunately, they start showing up after dark and I’m no good with flash. I hope I didn’t blind the little guy.
