Your Monday Photo Shoot: Domestic Wildlife

The Blogfather handed down our marching orders for this week...

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Your neighborhood is full of wildlife no matter where you live. Catch some of it -- in a picture.

Head for the great outdoors in your neighborhood and show us what kind of creatures live there. You can take new pictures, or if you have older pictures that fill the bill, post those instead (one note: since we've done animal picture assignments before, don't recycle pictures you've already used for previous assignments -- get out and show us something new!). Once you've posted them in your Blog or Journal, come back here and leave a link. Let's see the wild life!


So, here's a little something on the wild side.  It looks like a moth, but it had a long proboscus like a hummingbird, and behaved like a hummer as well.  But its a moth, I'm sure.

Now, this is a hummingbird.

The first shot is a moth...a Cecropia Moth. I know them well...used to hatch one every year with my preschoolers.  http://www.geocities.com/RainForest/5479/

This was great. I love the shot that's OBVIOUSLY a hummingbird, but that other shot, the one in question, is very intruiguing. I like that a lot.
