A couple of Eyed Hawk-moth-Smerinthus ocellata found feeding on the Buddleia in the garden back in July, I just love these large 80mm wingspan beasties
They are large but very cute Ade awesome clarity again mate!
Sharp and expertly done as always, Ade.
A fabulous double capture Ade, wonderful details, colours and comp. I wonder if they got there of their own volition, an even more impressive image if they did!
A great close-up......Sandy
Such beauties Ade - fab detail as usual!
Do you have to make me more jealous that I already am, Ade, I haven't spotted ONE hawkmoth this year, let alone TWO . A superb capture, of course, what else from you Carol
Cracking good capture Ade.
almost camouflaged against the bright colour of the buddleia but a grand shot
Now you are just getting greedy Ade,I wouldn't mind seeing one of these never mind two !!
Adrift in the liberating, late light
of August, delicate, frivolous,
they make their way to my front porch
and flutter near the glassed-in bulb,
translucent as a thought suddenly
wondered aloud, illumining the air
that's thick with honeysuckle and dusk.
You and I are doing our best
at conversation, keeping it light, steering clear
of what we'd like to say.
You leave, and the night becomes
cluttered with moths, some tattered,
their dumbly curious filaments
startling against my cheek. How quickly,
instinctively, I brush them away.
Dazed, they cling to the outer darkness
like pale reminders of ourselves.
Others seem to want so desperately
to get inside. Months later, I'll find
the woolens, snug in their resting places,
full of missing pieces.
An excellent ode to the Big O Nathan and the perfect way to bring up his RC award
I feel so privileged, a beautiful moth image from you, Ade, and a wonderful poem from Nathan.
Two for the price of one, must be this week's special offer. Good on you for capturing these.
excellent shot, I have not seen one of those this summer, just about any other hawk moth but not this big monster.
let alone 2!!!!
Wonderful image, Ade, the colours and detail are magical, another fantastic piece of work as always.
