But I wanted to share with you anyway.
My first video
Yesterday I edited and saved my first video and I uploaded my first video to You Tube.
If you just knew what a total technology klutz I am, you would know that this is really a BIG deal.sual creature busily gathering food.
So here’s the really cool part:
Last night Ross and I saw not one but TWO hummingbird moths. I’ve seen two in the 16 yrs we’ve lived here. Ross has never seen one, he just had to go on my word. Last night we had hundred of moths swarming the lilac bushes and in the midst of them were two hummingbird moths. They are so fascinating. They move and behave exactly like hummingbirds, sucking up nectar from the flowers with a visibly long tongue (OK, I know the word is proboscis, but for some reason Ross found it funny every time I used that word.)
Now, I admit, the video quality is not the best. In fact, it’s kinda bad. Sorry for that. It was nighttime and the moth was moving so fast, it was hard to keep it in screen. Ross kept a flashlight shining on it while I tried to keep up with it. But I hope I captured for you the magic of seeing this unusual creature busily gathering food.
So, here’s the video
(And now comes another test: can I figure out how to insert a video in this post?)
(Woo hoo! Am I turning into a technology genius or what?)
Providence and abundance
Also last night, about an hour before sunset, Ross and I saw a blue jay fly between a tree in the back and our woods. I hope that means he has found a good place for a home and there will be more of them next year. Such a brilliant blue, it was like having a little jewel living in our trees.
I guess there really is a connection here to Provident Living: Last night, watching these creatures, I was made aware again of the diverse abundance of God’s goodness. This last week we have been reveling in the aromas of crab apple blooms and lilacs. It wasn’t just for us alone, but hundreds of moths and birds as well. All of it made for our enjoyment and betterment. I’m glad I could capture a bit of it and share with my friends.
