Riddle of the Sphinx
Walking along our Campfire Rd at dusk last week, JY saw something flitting about the damianita bush. It seemed reminiscent of the humming birds we had been seeing during the day; its wing beats even sounded the same; but it was smaller and extremely fast. We tried to capture it on camera. Though little more than a blur, it is clearly the hummingbird moth, the hawk moth, the white-lined sphinx moth. One can even make out its long proboscis.
