Flowers, moths, and bees

Happy Friday!!!

I know quite the combination. Today I thought I would post something other than people. Give me and everyone else a break. LOL

Last year when I was still using the Kodak Z650, I saw in my lavendar bush this huge bee looking thing. I thought maybe a bee had mutated or something. I mean it was huge! Anyway, after much research I found out that my “bee” was actually a hummingbird moth. This year I saw one on my butterfly bush. I was really excited at trying to capture it again this time using my Nikon D40x. I forgot to set my ISO back down to 200……that is why it looks a little grainy. I was pretty excited though when I looked closely at the picture and could see the “tounge” reaching out for nectar/pollen whatever it is they drink.
