Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

More Silly Bug Photos

With a tongue that long, he can get right down to the bottom. 1000th of a second will not quite stop the wings. I have never seen one of these just sitting on a flower. You might say, "He's just a hummin".
lest we forget, this guy is only about an inch long. He is quick and very hard to keep in focus.

Beautiful, detailed photos. I've never seen a butterfly moth. It's an interesting creature.

Thank you, thank you!!!! I first saw these in my garden last year, and I was afraid of them! Glad to know they are moths :-)

Okay, I've never even heard of these. Are these really a type of moth or is that a running joke?

:-/ I am amazed by your photography. Speaking of bees, I try to not start running like a lunatic when I see one, I've never been comfortable around bees, for a good reason, but I try to not panic. Hard for a gardner to do!
