Huh, now i didn't know that about the male of the species being the more colorful....just like birds eh?? That's a nice little tidbit to know!
I love chilling in the yard and watching hummingbirds and hummingbird moths come to feed at the feeder. There is a ruby-throat hummingbird that comes every day, he is a fearless little guy lol. He doesn't even care that you're sitting 5 feet away, he's taking a drink!

Dude !


Do you live on a tropical island or something ?

I must say I do not know if this color thing also is going on with moths.

Lol, nope no tropical island here....but during the summer, Michigan is home to a very wide variety of birds....everything from bald and golden eagles to hummingbirds, mallards, robins, owls and bluejays. Actually, here is a list of some of Michigan's summer residents. Michigan Birds

very nice!!!!

I've seen that zombie-making wasp before, but it is still mind-blowing to me. Crazy how it's victim tries to fight for a minute, but once the wasp gets ahold of him it's game over and he becomes a host for the larvae to feed on. Creepy indeed!

Good thread OP


Instead of going the creationism/evolution argument route I would like to say that articles like this make me question our dating techniques and reliability.
