Remember how I said last week I was hoping to catch a couple shots of the local backyard butterflies....?
Later in the day, I was out watering the gardens when this little Plume moth caught my eye
A little while later...
After I stopped flirting with him, and went back to watering, I soon had to put the hose down again, because another reddish flutter caught my eye.
a Crambid Snout Moth. However, they don't seem to be found this far north, being common to Oklahoma, Utah, Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Californiaand Mexico. So either I'm waaaaaaay off on my research, or he's a very long way from home!
And despite the luck with these guys (even though most of them were moths.) I just can't get a shot of those darn Cabbage Whites... they just won't sit still. But I won't give up!
