What an amazing looking moth...gorgeous. You had better put your feet up with a cup of tea. xx
I've never seen a moth quite like that. It's wings look curled. Nice that it was so still for you to take it's pictures....unlike those sweet sprites on your lawn. Gosh, I've been jumping through loops with Grands as well. Also, working on setting up a website for my High School Class. It's coming along and of course I'm overSuedoing. Can you believe how fast the summer is going? When does school start for you? My Grands start August 24th and they were ready to go back last week. Enjoy seeing you blog changes...pretty pink roses and fun stars.
that is the most intersting moth I have ever seen, no idea what he is. We get lots of moths from the woods here but nothing like yours. What a lovely visitor - I wonder if he eats bark of trees? (or off your front door!)
Ooh, fancy moth! Never seen one like that before! Like your new bloggy background too, very sparkly and doodley! xxx
beautiful moth~!is it a type of hummingbird moth i wonder . . . ?:-)libbyQ
Pretty moth, but I dont know what he is. Maybe one of the Hawk moth family?
Hi Missy!Love your new starry blog layout! Handsome moth visitor you have there, but I hope he's not the kind that eats your woolly things!Your yard looks so green and pretty, and those littles look like they're having a grand time at Granny's house.I am a pooped granny too -- lots of commotion (as my mom used to say ;-) over the last two weeks! I actually slept until nearly 10:00 this morning. I don't think I've done that since I was a teenager!Hugs to you Friend,G
Hi Pom Pom! What a lucky granny you're to have such lovely and joyful grandchildren!Make the most if your time with them!xxx
Pom Pom, I'm pretty sure that is a Pandorus Sphinx Moth. I had the caterpillar in my garden several years ago, and actually mentioned that moth in my very first blog post ever. Look here if you want to read it: http://quietcountryhouse.blogspot.com/search?q=pandorusGoogle images will give you some good photos of both moth and caterpillar if you search using the name of the moth.Enjoy the weekend!
I knew that moth too! We call it Pandora (as in Pandora's box) Spinx moth. One year there were the caterpillars all over my woodbine and they ate the whole thing up. I had the kids picking those fat caterpillars off by hand and tossing them into a bucket of water to drown. Pretty moth, but pretty destructive.Jody
Great fun! The kids had a wonderful time! Thank you so much! Lovelovelove
Your yard is beautiful and the grands look like they're quite enjoying it! I hope you were able to just relax and watch :o).Blessings!Deborah
