Wildlife Weekend

Visited mom and dad yesterday. Kept running into wildlife all over the place.

First it was the turkeys in the road:

Then the giant moth (fairly certain he's a Ceanothus silkmoth) that took up residence by the front door:

I know scale is impossible in this photo. His (I think male because of those huge antenna) body is about the size of my thumb. He landed there at 10 am and stayed until dark. I have more pictures of him on the good camera which I'll put up when I can upload them.

Then there was the humming bird that flew in the house. Thanks to quick ninja-action from dad, she was saved from a heart attack and only spent about 30-45 seconds inside.
