Last night I got some good photos of sphinx moths. These large, interesting moths are sometimes mistaken for hummingbirds,
because they hover and sip nectar from flowers...

My modeling has gone to the birds. This afternoon I was working in my modeling room when a pair of Carolina Wrens decided to build a nest on one of my wall units. They are regular visitors and come in frequently to extract supplies to build their nests. They aren't afraid of me nor are they camera shy.

But today they chose a rather nice spot next to 2 Solido 1/19 model cars. They are doing this while Im working at my bench only feet from where theyre flying in and out.

Unless they can show you a valid drivers license and proof of insurance I wouldn't let em' drive those cars!

Unless you live in Florida, where apparently that's OK ;-) :-)

A bit of the local wildlife found by my daughter, Jaime, while we were on a walking tour of Old Havana, Cuba, last month:

Very cool indeed Frank'. I have Wrens here too, but never come that close when I work in their vicinity.. Put a little house next to the cars from them'...

That's a nice idea Ted, but outside.

A frequent visitor to the lake front. He just caught a fish.

Ken, they are majestic birds. I'm glad to see them rebound so well. I recently saw one by the Bull Run Marina in Fairfax Co., VA.

Here is one not quite so majestic.

I was turning over the garden and finding the occasional grub worm (about 1/2" long) when this brute showed up. It was just a bit over 2" long.
