Description

Only Shakespeare can fully describe the love I feel for this moth:

If I should think of love
I'd think of you, your arms uplifted,
Tying your hair in plaits above,
The lyre shape of your arms and shoulders,
The soft curve of your winding head.
No melody is sweeter, nor could Orpheus
So have bewitched. I think of this,
And all my universe becomes perfection.
But were you in my arms, dear love,
The happiness would take my breath away,
No thought could match that ecstasy,
No song encompass it, no other worlds.
If I should think of love,
I'd think of you.

I enjoyed spending 15 minutes or so with this foraging White-lined Sphinx Moth in my yard a while ago. Many folks mistake these sphinx moths for hummingbirds.

Description

The most stunning (native) moth I have seen - the photos don't do it justice. The forewings were a bright blue colour and when it took off it revealed the most brilliant orange hindwings with black stripes (just visible in the second photo).

Truly amazing. I cannot stop thinking about it and wonder if anyone knows what it is... I thought perhaps Paranotoreas?

It flitted off before I could get better photos.
