Hummingbird Hawkmoths... and Starfish

Yesterday I spotted a hummingbird hawkmoth in the garden, with its extra long proboscus-- I love the transparent wings and the furry body. This one had two burgundy stripes  around the body close to the stumpy, fuzzy tail. Apparently, they tend to travel a certain path each day, and follow this routine relatively closely, so I will try to photograph that one later on.
What has this got to do with starfish? Well! Nothing, really... other than the fact that becuase of a sale of colourful codfish and salmon to an office in Seattle, someone in Alaska just ordered this silver starfish from my etsy shop! (Yay!) And it happens to be my favorite, I love the way the glass enamel has layered and melted onto the silver.
