Was it really a hummingbird?






The other night I was making dinner - Pork roast with injectible marinade (you know the stuff that comes with a hypodermic) and Homemade Black beans and rice - yum - anyway I went out to check on the meat and had the camera as I was going to blog about my indirect cooking method on the grill. I came around the corner and what should I see but a tiny whirring set of wings in the plumbago.




I was out there so long taking pictures that Mike poked his head out, "What are you doing out here?"

Doesnt the Plumbago look nice against our house? It matches our old fashioned sky blue aluminum siding and makes it look almost stylish. Anyway what do you think? A hummingbird?

That doesn't look like any hummingbird I've ever seen, but I live in Ohio...

It looks more like a huge moth than a hummingbird. But I'm from Michigan, too, and I hope to goodness there aren't any moths that size in our state!
