Sphingidae — Sphinx Moth

A Sphingidae — Spinx Moth, AKA Hummingbird Hawk-Moth, was fluttering around feeding on our Purple Salvia with the bees and the butterflies. I made a short video of it and added one of our recordings of Caña for background music (I’m playing and Laurie’s dancing). The only sound on the original video was the wind.

Bugs & Bunnies

Before Covid-19 set upon us, Laurie and I got “Backyard Bugs” and “Bunny Cakelet” baking molds for Spring. Laurie made really good carrot cake bunny and bug cakelets, and a glaze to cover them with. She gave a couple of bunnies to her parents, and the bugs and a bunny to Tristan.
