Rustic Sphinx MothEnough of this 100+ degree weather!!! I am so sick of watering every 3 days here....it's getting old!! And the mosquitos need to die.
You will also notice giant green catepillars on the bush that look dangerous....remember the rule, where there's one, you'll usually find another:)
They won't harm this bush at all and it will grow back so I let them do their damage.
I had difficulty taking these shots as the sun was setting and I think that this is a common problem snapping shots during this time of day....I've heard it's hit or miss.
I didn't notice the bare branches today until after I started watering.
My actions. Nothing. Nature comes first. Bats will eat these critters or they'll grow to be moths....but I know one thing.....they aren't doing anything to the bush, and I know it will come back:) They are fun little surprises to have in the garden:)
