Hummingbird Hawk-moths in Turkey…

Where ever I go I am always the biologist. My degree is in biology and I have a profound love for all things nature. I am constantly looking for that little creature that will tickle my fancy…

Well today in comes the Hummingbird Hawk-moth a close relative to the Hummingbird Moth in North America. I was so excited and I even was able to get some good picture of them while they fed on some beautiful flowers…

I will post two of the pictures here on Windows to Russia. I do not have anyway of doing a stop gap flash picture to stop the wings in flight. So I have to live with the fastest speed that my camera will do. It catches the body good but the wings are too fast… 🙂

Sveta and I were so blessed to have seen them and they even were nice enough to stay around long enough for me to get some pictures. They are so cool…

The Hummingbird Hawk-Moths were not the only thing that Sveta and I found interesting. This next picture tell a tale of another species of animal that lives on this planet. The species called man..

As you can see we found a normal human situation. If you can get just a little more on that truck? We can make a little more money… 🙂

I find it interesting to see what humans will do when they can get away with it. I have no idea what they are hauling around. But they are hauling a lot of what ever it is. This is common to see a truck in Turkey loaded so full and there is a guy sitting on top while it runs down the road. He spends his time pushing power-lines up so that the truck can navigate the city streets. They crawl around the streets like a turtle looking for food. Other words not very fast…

They are having a drink and a rest before they carry on with their business as you can see them sitting in the shade. It is a hot day…

So there you have two different species living on the same planet. The Hummingbird Hawk-moths could care less about the over grown, overloaded and old truck. Just as the two guys with the truck could careless that just around the corner is some of the most fantastic little creatures that dart and float just like a Hummingbird looking for food…

That is what makes this world so wonderful and I am so glad that I get to see things as they are…
