Been walking around New York since Wednesday and have not seen a single butterfly or moth!  Also no pigeons or any birds really but going into Central Park today and then Coney Island so May at least see a rabbit there!

Are you telling me Home Alone 2 isn't true to life?

Never watched that film.  Are there a lot of pigeons in it ?

We walked along the High Line old railway today where they have done a fabulous job of both preserving the old line, creating a peaceful walk with great views and resting places as well as planting up the edges with interesting trees and plants that are not just plonked there but well tended

In  the Uk I would expect to see squirrels and pigeons and sparrows particularly hanging around places where people are eating but nothing today.  Perhaps they are all following Tom Lehrer’s advice

Elephant Hawk.  No idea whether Large or Small but probably Large.


Nice find; Was there wilowherb nearby?  He/she (I think they're non-binary 😆) will have been looking for soft ground into which to bury and pupate

no it was in my garden seemed to be coming away from my hollyhocks half a hour later i could not find it.
