Hummingbird Clearwing Moth feeding on
Lavender with a white silk Chinese lantern hanging in the background.
I know this might seem kind of strange,
but I feel this moth may actually have come to our garden from China.
Like it was caught up in the jet stream and swept all the way to Missouri
where it spied this white silk lantern in a garden of Lavender and thought it
had gone all the way around the world and arrived back home again in China.
Stranger things have happened.
