A cabbage moth flitted around the garden today and lingered in a patch of native plants, sipping nectar and sunning itself.
First it flew to the Chiapas salvia blossoms (image above).
Then it landed on a large nasturtium leaf where it sat, spreading its wings. On the other side of the leaf you can see an insect about to crawl up to the edge.
.Then the cabbage moth flew up onto a borage blossom, where it spent a while sipping nectar.
