Something with wings

I love this, lots and lot of wonderful butterflies at Two Dresses Studio Butterfly Project. So many to love, but this and this are my faves.

And ... speaking of ... I am always complaining that we don't have many moths here, but today I found a Hummingbird Moth (Hemaris thysbe) caterpillar crawling on the deck. After some research I found out that it feeds on snowball bush leaves, and I have two snowballs. This is how it looks as a moth. More about this moth at Encyclopedia of Life. So why haven't I seen it? A mystery! and Naturally Curious with Mary Holland is a must see.
