I have always wanted to see one of these, only had a few seconds but managed a halfway usable image. Hope you enjoy.

Nice shot. I love these guys. There's a field in Flagstaff, AZ at the base of Snowbowl that is filled with them when the flowers are in bloom.

Have Fun,
Jeff

Beautiful shot, Lester. Love them. Seen it once in my front yard but it wouldn't let me get within ten feet from it.

A really great shot of it Lester. I have never seen one either - I purposely planted some Valerian (which looks like what it's on in your pic), have plenty of budlias and still not seen one lol. So envious of you
