Exploring Fabius Township and St. Joseph County, Michigan, with side trips all over this Great Lakes state

It is hardly even week by week......

And we are even going back a few weeks to pick up on this wonderful creature whom my Facebook friends helped me to identify back on September 3 as a Humming Bird Moth.  Thanks to Jen we also know its formal name "Hemaris thysbe."  When I first saw it, I wondered if it was a mutant humming bird.  Not a mutant but a moth it is and quite spectacular with its whirring wings.

I write this as the cold rain continues in SW Michigan, but because of the Tigers Detroit is feeling sunny.
