Hummingbird Moth and Friend

I caught the Hummingbird Moth
and friend on a Thistle at Strawberry Plains Audubon Center in Holly Springs at the Hummingbird Festival this year. The Hummingbird team with Mr Sargent banded 281 Ruby Throat Hummers and all I got was photos of thistles wildflowers and insects. Behind the beautiful Post Bellum house is a small courtyard that swarms with hummers this time of year. As something of an insider I got to stand in the midst of what was almost a low level din with dozens and dozens of them buzzing around and at me. I am proud to say I left the courtyard unscathed with nary a bruise or bird poop on me. Kudos to Kristin Lamberson and all who do all the hard work.
