Another happy day in insect-sighting; I spied a Pandora Sphinx Moth (likely male due its slightly diminutive size) while waiting for a bus. This time I did have time to snap shots of my own, but my Blackberry makes for a very poor camera. I was able to identify it later, thanks to my photos at the time! But there’s just no way I’m letting the coloration on this beautiful creature be downplayed by my shoddy camerawork.
Many thanks, then, to Wiki Commons for the following shot. I wonder if the little guy I saw ever realized he wasn’t well protected from predators while snoozing on white concrete!
