With their bright yellow beaks and feet, don't you think the Band-tailed Pigeons look as though they are wearing costumes?
I was always sure I was totally disguised and unrecognizable at Halloween. I found a cute cartoon that illustrates the point perfectly.
The other evening I was pleased to see a small Hummingbird Hawk-moth working on a herb. It has a long 'nose' and it hovers and 'hums' - all making it closely resemble a hummingbird while feeding on flowers. I photographed a Hummingbird Clearwing Moth last summer and you can see it here.
A rather omnious sky. Perfect for Halloween night!
