    Yes Jimmy.. there are two large ones & a little one that hang out together. They seem to be a family the way they interact. Just love them & they are quite friendly with me.

  • I think that you mean humming-birds and not moths like the one at my picture?
    I love humming-birds too.Unfortunately they don’t live in Spain,but I saw them in Costa rica and Panama.

    It seems eating nectar is extremly hard work. I like the movement in this.

  • Thanks!
