Not a moth... yet!

(Title's for you, Becky! ;) )

If you've been wondering what became of the moth eggs I wrote about in this post, you're about to find out! Here they are, 9 days after they were laid. See the few little "worms" with dark heads?

Click on the pics to enlarge, if you want to see the teeny things even bigger (not you, Cindy!). They were in actuality only about a millimeter long!

Below is a photo I took of the earlier ones at the top of the window. You can see them a bit more clearly.

The dark colored eggs are the unhatched ones... the clear ones are empty.

I have no idea where they went, or what they eat... or anything. If I had more time (and curiosity), I'd look it up. But this will be the last of my moth posts (unless I come across something interesting again!). I must get to my fabric and sewing machine! Seeya later!!

Hmmm, not a hummingbird either.

Interesting window I do have to say!

I probably won't have any hummingbird photos till late summer. I quit putting out my feeder in the spring because it wasn't worth the bother for the few hb's that we get. They don't nest around here. But they do stop for snacks on their way south.
