Saw two of them last night.. couldn't get pictures of both! Tried... was taking shots pretty blind as I had all the lights off & was watching for movement in the agastache.

Made this into a banner. I'm hoping that the banner people approve it! I'm rather proud of it... *Blush*

Wow! Hummingbird moths are difficult subjects. Your banner looks wonderful.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Marilyn - A. cana.. I think it's Sonoran Sunset.. but I do remember the tag stating just A. cana w/o a cultvar name. Confused

Mary - *Blush* They weren't difficult subjects to photograph.. just hard to see in the dark!! Gotta love a point-n-shoot camera.. I tried to take pictures w/my phone, but they kept flying to the flash!!

Used my DH's Sony CyberShot DSC-WX150 for this. It's a super simple camera as he, a major IT guy, couldn't figure out my Canon Rebel 3 (heck, I can't figure it out either, but he has no excuse.. he's a geek!). Turned off all the lights so that it was as dark as possible and just used the street lights to watch for movement in the Agastache, then hoped I was pointing the camera in the right direction & pressed the button. Almost 100% of the pictures came out "ok"!

Couldn't get any pictures last night, but I've got 4 hummingbird moths now that check out the agastaches every night. They're definitely not afraid of humans as one of them smacked right into my chest & another kept buzzing my glasses.
