The Sphinx moth’s are found worldwide . They primarily hide during the day and emerge at dusk or during the early morning hours. I guess this guy was hungry to be out and about late afternoon !
As a caterpillar, They eat the leaves and stems of plants. As an adult moth, They drink nectar from flowers. They will go from flower to flower hovering over them and they are often confused with the hummingbird.
Their size and rapid wing beats allow them to hover and feed like hummingbirds, which is why they were nicknamed 'hummingbird moths'. People often mistake the protrusion on the back of the sphinx caterpillar for a stinger .

Of Butterfly’s , Birds and Blooms !
Ken and I took a day trip to a wonderful place just an hour away !
It was lovely to take photos of the beautiful Butterfly’s and birds as they flutter and fly all around us !
Being there was like being in a whole new world !
Happy Canada day to all our fellow Canadians .
Ken and I went to St Thomas air port to watch a wonderful and jaw dropping Great Lakes International Air Show .
It was awesome . I have been to many air shows over the years but this one was the best . It was all paid for by Ken’s work and I got to meet a lot of the people Ken works with . It was a day of fun sun good food and awesome folk. We were in the VIP tent and area front row seats to the runway !
I didn't take my camera cause I wanted Ken to be the photographer for this as he doesn’t get as much photography time as I do and the photos and video he took was fantastic . He put some of his fave photos and videos together yesterday and made a DVD to music . There was this one Pilot Sean Tucker who was amazing in his acrobatic red plane named Oracle Challenger III . He is the best in the world and it was fantastic that he was talking to the audience and fans from the cockpit as he was in the middle of his stunts .If you would like to see the DVD that Ken did please go to .http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jLDBTiaEaE&fmt=22
Here are some of the photos he took as well !
These guys are our Stunt team Snow Birds they are amazing and so beautiful both on the ground and in the air !
This is the stunt pilot Sean Tucker he was funny over the radio as he was flying !
They also had some wonderful old Biplane and Triplane from the great war of 1914 to 1918 they have been kept in tip top condition !
This big beast is a cargo plane the CC 130 Hercules . It is used for troop transport and search and rescue . As you can see from the photo we were fairly close to the runway !
This pin up girl is the B17 flying fortress named the Sentimental Journey ! Introduced in active service in 1938 .
This is the P51 C Mustang a long range escort fighter . Flown by the famous Tuskegee Airmen . There is a movie about the history of this plane and it’s pilots called Red Tails . We have seen it and it is a good movie .
We had a wonderful time and to this day I still want to go up in one of these beauties !
Thanks for popping by !
