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.
I've never seen this person, before. I think it terribly kind of him to grace my yellow hibiscus with his presence.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
