Love these photos after dark. That might be a hummingbird moth, good capture!

I think it's a hummingbird moth too. From a distance it's hard to tell it from a hummer.
Such pretty blooms today Patsy.
Have a nice weekend.

Hi Patsy. How sweet is that little frog on the Apple gourd. I love watching your apple gourds change over the weeks.
Your Pope Paul roses are always so pretty. I still think Bennie did good on that pick LOL!
You both have a wonderful weekend.
