The Masked Bandit
aka Hummingbird Moth
Hemaris thysbe 1 1/2 -2 inches in size.
The speedy moth can be seen by a close observer these days-- sipping on the bee balm.
I was very excited to capture these images and decided to post them as a trio. I will try again as I would like to perfect this means of capturing insects who NEVER sit still!
I am sorry to have missed your images today; my excuse--a medical appointment in the near by city. And I do appreciate your attention to the Nile Crane--Thank you!
Special thanks are due to Joline and Edmund for UA's for the Spicebush butterfly!
Love V3, V1 &2 are equally very special.
Oh my goodness what an amazing looking moth!
I should think these images will be the envy of many insect lovers!
Wow! Super colours excellent captures.
You have done exceptionally well with an insect that won't sit still, Jenn: and what a pretty moth it is.

wow very nice close up
Great colours! Lovely captures
Impressive stuff !!
All beautiful images.
Three fantastic images. Wow -- that 1/2500 sec. shutter speed really gave you a crisp image of those fast moving critters.
I really like the POV of V3. It makes it look like you are flying in behind your subject -- racing him to the flower.
Superb Jenn, what a fabulous creature. I have never seen one of these before and your wonderful images are a real treat.
Beautiful looking moth, Jenn.
Beautiful work in this set of excellent captures !
Not seen one as close up as this before Jenn, love the detail, something we are not aware of in the ordinary humming bird shot, well done
These are excellent Jenn - they are sooo difficult to capture. Nigeve1 has been capturing some too.
you have done very well, each time I think I got the perfect method for these lightning fast beauties they find a way to trick me next time!
so far the 400mm method seems to work best.
Fantastic set. Cathy
Whenever I am looking at these butterflies I think of hummingbirds! And I'm very sorry that hummingbirds do not fly here ... And what about you, Jenn, are there these wonderful birds where do you live?
How beautiful... Never seen one myself, thank you for sharing. IB
A stunning image of this hummingbird hawkmoth, you've timed this one to perfection and captured some glorious bright colours
Well done capturing such a speedy insect. Lovely colours.
