I fixed the word ‘Snowberry’.
I misspelled it on the video, the photos & this post.
I apologize for my mistake & any confusion I may have caused.

      I agree, they’re beautiful. It’s also neat to be able to actually see through it’s wings. I hope you get to see one someday.
      Thanks so much. 🙂

    • Thanks Mary,
      Yes, unfortunately, it’s caterpillars are a pest of tomato and potato farmers. We’re lucky that it’s not an issue with our gardening and we can enjoy the beauty of the Moths. 🙂


  1. I remember thinking I’d never seen a bee that big when one crawled into a blossom on the trumpet vine one year. That’s when I learned what it really was–and I didn’t need to worry about getting stung!
