If you’ve been following this blog for a while you’ll know that the “émerveillment du quotidien” is a key life principle for me.
That French phrase captures the sense of continuous open-ness to wonder. (It means the amazing everyday – more or less!)
But look what I managed to film today!
I’ve seen and heard this little creature buzzing around my garden recently and he never, ever stays still. Not for a second! I think it’s called a “hummingbird moth”.
His wings make a deep buzzing sound so its always obvious when he is around.
Look at the speed of his wings! Look at that long proboscis and how it can curl right up into a spiral! It’s astonishing!
