    New England

    2014 - 07.30

    With so many different places to see in our great nation, I ask myself why I keep returning to the Northeast. With no definitive answer, my camera catches pieces of places and moments in time. Perhaps it’s the fresh blueberry everything from ice cream to pancakes, to cheeses and pies. Or the fresh seafood, or the fresh air, or the leathered hands that are always open and friendly to strangers. It might just be the call of the loon as the sun sets behind the pine forested hills, with a lingering dance that whispers good night to the day as she passes. What ever the reason, she holds a special place in my heart.

    Often times in nature you come across something that looks as though it was created with leftover pieces. It might have the body of one specie and the face of something quite different. So it is with the hummingbird moth. It has the body of a large bee, the wings of a hummingbird, and the mouth parts of a moth.  I’ve been fortunate to have these guys visit my garden year after year, and today I went out several times to watch and photograph them. The following are images taken with their favorite plant, the bee balm.
