Two days ago my family and I were sitting outside on our deck enjoying the wonderful weather we were having. As I was sitting, a pretty moth flew onto my lap. My younger daughter grabbed my camera phone and took a couple pictures of the moth.
My daughter and I love to wander through our local garden centers. The beautiful flowers and tranquil settings are a great stress relief during the week. One day as we were walking through the Walmart garden center, my then 3 year old daughter noticed this butterfly. I just happened to have my camera with me so I took a few photos of this flying beauty. I never thought it would turn out this good. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
I've never seen this person, before. I think it terribly kind of him to grace my yellow hibiscus with his presence.
This imperial moth appeared on my back porch one morning and perched itself against a wooden post. The markings on this moth are that of a fall leaf with the coloration of dark yellows and browns. It was a fascinating creature to see.
I discovered a 10 cm caterpillar ready to cocoon. I put it into a container and waited, for about four months. First the huge cocoon and then this.
I sat outside for nearly two hours in minus temperatures to get these photos. It was worth every shiver and shake to capture this miracle of nature.

I found this sinister beauty on my front porch bench a few days ago. At first, it was so still that I was afraid it was dead, but when I touched its wing with a piece of paper, it moved. I read on-line that these will make clicking sounds to repel predators, and it might even jump at you.
We had a severe drought in South Africa. During the drought, we hardly saw any insects. We also saw many birds in our garden that we don't normally expect to see in the city.

I was just walking to the store and saw this lil guy. He posed beautifully and after a few photos, I wished him well and went my way.
