Quiet Moments In The Garden

After a busy day in the garden,

I was glad to sit quietly and study the beautiful patterns

and colors of this large moth.

  1. Stunning. It hasn’t been a great year here for butterflies and moths because of all the rain and their numbers are in decline anyway, partly due to loss of habitat and also climate change. I try to plant as many plants as possible that attract them to help a little, they’re such beautiful creatures.

  2. What a lovely photo! If that’s a Sphinx Moth (which it looks like it might be) it comes from a VERY hungry caterpillar. (DH just had the displeasure of nearly losing every single leaf on a baby pecan tree to one such caterpillar. It was bigger around than my thumb, and about as long.)
