A Little Hummingbird & A Pretty Moth

I'm doing my best to make my backyard Hummingbird friendly.  I keep seeing them, but they're so quick!  I finally got a pic of one yesterday, look closely he/she is there. :)

Today I saw this unusual moth.  He/she sat still and let me take a few pics.  I just love nature, we've been given so many gifts if we just take time to appreciate them.

Happy weekend to you!

I love hummingbirds, they are such characters! The furry moth is absolutely stunning, it's a pity more people don't pay attention to them.
Happy Weekend!

I see the little hummer!! So sweet!!! We found a moth on the rug the other day and I took pictures. It has taken me days to identify him, so much that my eyes really hurt! Ours was plain, yours is fuzzy and fantastic!!

Hi, Marie! That reminds me of a poodle moth, which I've only seen in photos.

I've never had much luck attracting hummingbirds and the one time I did see one it was too fast for me to get it's picture.
That moth is really interesting. It looks very fuzzy

That is on very furry moth, I have never seen one like that before. Getting shots of hummers is hard. If you figure out the secret let me know. :)

Hope you all have a great weekend.

That is an interesting moth, Marie; I haven't seen one those colors. You did great getting the picture of the hummingbird. My son bought me a hanging plant for Mother's Day and I enjoy watching the hummingbirds come to "taste" of it. One day two of them were "fighting" over it :)

enjoy the weekend

i bet those hummers are so quick the camera can't focus... if you have sport mode on your camera try that. the moth is a furry beauty and those trees are magnificent

I haven't seen any hummers around here this year...glad you captured one! The moth is very cool. :)

Great photos of the hummer and the moth. I rarely get to see hummingbirds and that moth is a real pretty one.

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

I agree with your philosophy :) I have yet to get a hummingbird picture. If I am out on my porch and am treated to one coming by I basically just hold my breath...and enjoy. Have never had the camera out there at the right time!

I like your unusual moth! :)

Gosh that's a weird looking moth! Great shots!

Hugs Madi and Mom

Moth???? Very interesting looking one!!!!!!

I love hummingbirds and hope they visit you. I have 3 feeders out here --and recently, we've had quite a few hummers around.. BUT--I can NEVER be fast enough to get their photo.... Oh Well...

Hope you are enjoying your new home and area.
Hugs,
Betsy

Hi Marie,
Great shot of the hummingbird, I bet they are difficult to catch on photo. Hope you're doing fine.
Hugs,
