Every morning when I stumble out to pick up the newspaper, I like to take a moment to look around at what is happening in the yard. Usually it is still peaceful. Only the birds are awake.

This morning something was zooming around the clumps of desert marigolds. It looked like a small hummingbird, and it flew fast and strong like a bird. Except it wasn't.

Here's one from an older slide I had scanned.

The white-lined sphinx moths have emerged!

White-lined sphinx moths are unusual for moths because they can be seen flying during the day, particularly in the early morning. Aren't they beautiful?

Have you seen any insects this week?
