I remember fretting over the lack of rainfall just a short time ago. As you can see from the banks of the Amnicon River in NW Wisconsin too much too quick sent many areas into flood control mode.
No but it is a sphinx hummingmoth. From a distance it looks just like a hummingbirid. I happened to spot this one hovering over the lilac bushes in our backyard.
Unexpected weather continues into May with much needed heavy rains several days in a row punching out leaves and green and raising stream and lake levels a bit too. Water helps us see why these are red pines as their outer bark gets a colorful hue after the rains. Thankfully the sun eventually makes an appearance to show us how lucky we are to see these wondrous sights.
