Good morning Okanagan! The weather is getting colder so here’s the morning start to warm up your day.

Fun Fact: The hawk moth caterpillar transforms into what looks like a small snake when it’s threatened to scare off predators. During the transformation, it changes its look to appear as a pit viper.
