The web counter on this blog is not all I had hoped but it does show that a lot more people look at this blog than comment. As expected, most of the activity comes from eastern Canada & U.S. Contacts from western U.S. have made a few comments but there are more hits from there than I might have expected. Contacts from Europe are kind of expected as we have Flickr contacts there but the contacts from South America, Africa and Asia were a bit of a surprise.
The camera that I normally use has retired to a shop for four to six weeks. Sigh! We are relying on the camera that Églantine has in her possession for about 98% of the time. Meanwhile, I can still find things to photograph and call her attention to consider. Thus "we" found and photographed this moth this morning during our dog walking time.
I really like it when insects have logical names. This most was found on an Evening Primrose flower and, when I went through the moth book, I found that it is named "Primrose Moth." The Latin, for those who are interested is Schinia florida.
I've been trying to get this next wild flower to grow in one of our wild flower gardens for two years now. It grew, for the first time, this year and bloomed, for the first time, this morning.
