It's Tuesday, Ketch-up Day


Hope you had a lovely weekend and are having a good week.

We had visitors, to one of the butterfly bushes, that entranced me. If it weren't for the antennas I would have sworn they were little hummers.  They constantly fluttered like hummers and their coloring was like hummers. I looked them up and it turns out I was partially right. They're hummingbird moths:)

Another weird mushroom

THE critters

AND Florida skies

Thanks, Shane.

That's all folks.

Lucky you to see hummingbird moths. I have only seen them on screen and have been fascinated. Love the critters and those skies are spectacular.

I've never heard of a hummingbird moth before, but you were brave in capturing it. Anything that flies is usually gone by the time I get it in focus.

Unique mushroom indeed. Wonderful photos of the fur crew!!

Andrew said...

Humming bird moth. Interesting.
How did the weird mushroom taste? Are you there Sandra? Sandra, please wake up.
Kind of a cat selfie.

Donna said...

I've never seen such a moth! Pretty!
We had crazy looking mushrooms pop up in our yard as well...
The critters are too sweet, and the skies are unusual looking! We heard there was a bad sinkhole in a Jacksonville parking lot...never heard anything else about it.
Try to enjoy the week!

Beautiful skies and photos, love Frankie through the window! They recently showed hummingbird moths on TV here, they are fascinating! Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

I love the picture of the cat in the window.
That mushroom really does look weird!

Dramatic skies.

I've heard of the hummingbird moth but never seen one here.

Birgit said...

Some great pics especially your dog and cat together. I never heard of that moth but cool you got a picture. The skies look so cool.

Amazing cloud formations!

CJ Kennedy said...

We had a hummer that looked like a bee. Pats and headbutts for the critters.

Christine said...

First I am hearing of hummingbird moths!

Janie Junebug said...

I didn't know there was such a thing as a hummingbird moth. I've seen a lot of butterflies in my backyard this summer. I hope my flowers have drawn them in. They've been so pretty.


Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Elizabeth. Those moths just fascinated me.
Andrew, ROFL. You're so funny.
Donna, Yikes. Sinkholes are scary things. Hugs received and returned.
Val, It looks like Frank for sure in that pic, but it's Maisy. You got to see a special on Hummmingbird Moths, that's both timely and cool. Hugs received and returned.
Thanks, Jamie. That mushroom looks like a space ship, doesn't it?

Aww love the dog and cat together.
There are so many different mushrooms aren't there.

Have a good week.

All the best Jan

Di, The little hummingbird moths are fascinating to watch. Hope you get to see one.
Birgit, Thanks:) Shane did catch some great sky shots, didn't he?
Alex, Aren't those something?
CJ, Bumblebee Moths! We've had those too.
Christine, They were new to me too.
Janie, Who'd a thought, right? Glad you've had flowers and butterflies this summer.
Thanks, Jan. There sure are:)

That mushroom is gorgeous -- it looks absolutely lacey! I loved all of the photos!

Tus mascotas son bellas. Lindos paisajes te mando un beso.

I love all the pics, Sandra :) How cool you got a hummingbird moth! Interesting mushroom for sure and all pet pics the best. Hugs xo

Love the skies and critters.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Jacqui:)
Jeanie, It does have a lacey effect doesn't it? Glad you liked the photos.
Thanks, J.P. I'm sending you a hug.
Denise, Those little moths are so fascinating. They look like baby hummers.
I am so sorry, Rue. I stopped by and read your post but Google vehemently refuses to let me comment at your site:(
