    I am pretty sure I have posted similar pictures here in the past but I wanted to share the ones I took tonight. The moon flower blooms at night and the flower only lasts one night. I was able to get one decent shot of the Sphinx moth and one a little washed out. And, I even have a couple artsy-fartsy ones to share.:rolleyes:

    Nice! We have a big moth that feeds on our hanging basket flowers. I couldn't figure out why the flowers were moving. They are almost silent.

    I have very limited photo editing software so this is the best I could come up with.
