For the last four years we have been getting Humming bird hawk moths in our Garden. This is one I caught. Unfortunately the wings are horizontal and moving so fast they are practically invisible. They are migrants from southern Europe and are becoming increasingly more common.

this is a wonderful photo I saw one of these moths this summer for the first time, and I wondered what ever it was until I got home and looked it up, I must admit it looks a bit sinister, as though it might sting, but now I know its harmless, they are amazing to watch just like a humming bird.

I appreciate the positive comments. This shot was hand held from about 2m and only needed slight sharpening.

Amazing creatures, I've been chasing them all summer - silhouettes I can manage, but not sharp ones like this. Well caught!
