Fourth of July tomorrow. Should be a crazy and fun day here at RMBL and Crested Butte (for example).
White-lined Sphinx Moth visiting Delphinium
While I was working yesterday, I saw this beautiful White-lined Sphinx Moth (Hyles lineata) visiting Delphinium nuttallianum flowers. I quickly dropped everything and started taking pictures of it. The moth was quite co-operative and let me got closer and closer until it was less than a metre away. What a treat! I have been compiling blog posts of my fauna and flora photos until the end of the field season, but I just can't wait to share these ones first. Hope you will enjoy these images as much I did photographing this beautiful creature.
