MOTH TALES
Birds & Blooms|October/November 2020
Butterflies may get all the glory, but these reader photos prove that moths are just as beautiful.

I WATCHED THIS CECROPIA MOTH emerge out of its cocoon and dry its wings on a gerbera daisy in my garden. I was so happy to see the beautiful moth and eventually watch it fly away.

hummingbird tales

EACH EVENING during our family vacation in Ridgedale, Missouri, a female ruby-throated hummingbird passed through the branches of a tree just off our porch. I brought my camera out one night in anticipation of her arrival and, sure enough, there she was. I hung over the railing to grab a series of images. The light and the lovely bird were amazing and the blooms looked like fireworks. It's a great memory from a wonderful trip with family.

The Canon Selphy Square QX10 is a departure from the company’s CP1300 Wireless Compact Photo Printer and earlier Selphy models. This photo printer is smaller and lighter than those other Canons, and it’s closer in functionality to the Editors’ Choice HP Sprocket Select or Canon’s own IVY Mini Photo Printer, though it’s still too big to be pocketable.
