WHAT THE HECK IS IT?

Ok, I found this in my driveway this morning.It was still alive and whatever Butterfly it was supposed to be it better hurry up and do it. I've never seen anything like it. I carried it all around the house this morning showing it to everybody much to their delight? It's now residing out in the prairie doing whatever it is they do.


NOTE: THANK YOU YVONNE who sent me the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eumorpha_pandorus to tell me what this is. Wow, isn't that amazing? I just love learning this stuff. THANK YOU SO MUCH, YVONNE!

  2. Oh, thank you so much Yvonne.
    One year, out at the cabin, I got up late at night and looked out the back window at the hill behind the house. Coming over the hill were hundreds of Sphinx Moths. I stood there with my mouth hanging open, I swear it looked like an army of elves with torches coming down the hill.

  4. I am always in awe of nature and her creatures, Trudi. I wonder what was going on in that little bird's head. :)Bea
