"I have taken these of one that I get daily around here now. Last year was my first sighting of it and had no idea what it was. Was not long after that, that our daily paper came out with an article on these little creatures. I wasn't lucky enough last year to get a picture but I did yesterday, (July 20, 2003), and would love to share them with you for your web sight.


I live in Lucas County just outside of the Toledo area. I was blessed with a new front porch two years ago and have taken so much time in planting flowers all in front of it then for my birthday last year was given flower pot holders for the railings. These cute little creatures seem of love the flowers in the pots that are hanging.


Thank you so much for the web page and all the information."
