Today was not one of our super-active days. Robb woke up with the uncanny sensation of having less sensation than usual in his feet and legs. (Let's hope this is one of our regularly scheduled Temporary Setbacks, and not Something More Serious.)
We were due for a particularly warm day, so I suggested that the go cycling somewhere that would be shady. Somehow, that didn't really work out. The gravel and eucalyptus pods on the trail made cycling really difficult. Neither of us could get decent traction.
I totally failed in my attempts at photographing butterflies. I really cannot fathom how butterfly photographers do it. Attempting to photograph these animals is truly humbling.
Actual, all of my efforts at photography were pretty poor, and I managed to get a bit too much sun in the process. The hummingbird photograph isn't anything special, except that it shows the bird's tongue, which always cracks me up.
White-Lined Sphinx Moth. I had encountered other sphinx moths before, but this was this first time I had seen this astonishing creature.
Unlike all of the animals I tried to photograph this afternoon, the hummingbird moth was unconcerned by my presence. Of course, the sun had set and I didn't have my camera.
Oh well. Seeing this unique animal was a real treat. And maybe I'll see it again some time.
