This was suddenly flying around my kitchen at 11PM last night:
A gorgeous Hummingbird Moth!
And yes, he really was
the size of a hummingbird. I spent an hour looking for him, wondering
the whole time if I'd really seen him or what...finally found him
perched on the broom and blending. Sneaky bugger was trying to gaslight
After his photo session, I captured him carefully in a cup and released him outside to go thump around someone else's house.
