July garden pictures

Our privet hedge recently bloomed and has been attracting many different types of flying insects. We have seen honeybees, native bees, butterflies and more.

I’ve been climbing a ladder to get close enough to a sphinx moth who has been quite elusive. Sphinx moths are sometimes mistaken for hummingbirds because of their shape and size.

I love taking close-up pictures of nature. So I must share some of them with you.
