Default Clear Wing Hummingbird Moth

This little insect is closer to a bird in motion and friendliness. It's no more than an inch long and loves Penta flowers. Strobe was used in making these photos.

Great shots. Something I've definitely never seen before. Must have taken some patience to get these as well.

Yeah Keven, these guys never stop and flit about often. My dad grew up in Winnipeg and was a good friend of Babe Pratt. The family came from Russia to Mountain Ave. in the early 1900's.

We're having almost Texas-like weather. 93-94 each of the past 4 days. Still only almost Texas-like. I grew up in E Kildonan so across the river.

Manitoba isn't that; that province with 3 seasons.. Sledding season, hard sledding season, and bug season :P

I'll stick with Southern BC thank you
