Sphinx moths and swallowtails

Right now, we're having a LOT of white-lined sphinx moths and pipevine butterflies in our Wildscape! This evening, we counted seven or eight moths nectaring on our salvias. For the past week or so, I haven't even tried to count the pipevines. But we see some every day in the gardens, and they've been depositing eggs on our pipevine plants. Oh, and last night I saw a juvenile robin taking a bath in one of our birdbaths! It's BUSY around this place!
