Finally, our Lilacs have come into bloom, though they're not quite at the peak. I'm sure they are the latest variety around here, because we've been seeing blooming Lilacs for at least 3 or 4 weeks. And often, we get a Hummingbird Moth visiting the Lilacs.
Our little grove a Lilacs has finally come of age this year, growing well and covered in blossoms.
This is the Hummingbird Moth, sitting still for a moment, unlike yesterday's bees! I think it's an incredible little insect.
If you look more closely at this photo, you can see the long proboscis rising and then plunging into an individual blossom.
This picture was an accident, but I was fascinated to see the curled up proboscis in front of the moth.
