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.

This is the first dragonfly that has stopped long enough for me to get a photo this season. Insect season, which means macro season, is coming into full swing.
Ladybugs (Coccinellidae) are all over our Peonies that are getting ready to pop.
