strange garden sighting

I have been busy with statistics homework this week, so I have not been able to work on my chairs as much as I would like... but I have been able to sneak out to the front porch for an hour here and there to strip-strip-strip the white laquer. One night, I was visited by the weirdest bug I have ever seen. At first, we thought it was a hummingbird because it was hovering... but when I snapped a couple pictures with the zoom, we could see antennae. Weird!

I did some research and this guy is a Hummingbird Hawkmoth. Isn't that about the weirdest bug you've ever seen? It would be pretty if it weren't so creepy!

that bug is the love child of a moth and a humming bird.

...all be it a creepy love child!

Hey Puck,

Looked for a way to email you but couldn't find it so figured I'd leave a comment instead.
Yes Ikea has an apron front sink, in single or double bowl version. The sink only has one hole in it so it is difficult and expensive to buy a faucet unless you go with one of theirs..
It is online and funny thing you can order the sink from them- they ship that just not hardly anything else. :)
