Hummingbird Hawkmoth

By HobbitDave
A summery image, for a summery feel. Hummingbird Hawkmoth on Buddleia. Wings of spirit. Freedom in flight. Into the light.

Sorry, v.1 was meant to be the lead image, couldnt change it round!

Thanks so much for the comments and especially for the valued awards from Ian, Fred, Jenn, Ronnie, and Trev, on my Nuthatch yesterday, they are so much appreciated and encouraging.

Wishing everyone peace and safety within 🕊 in these challenging times 🦋

I love that side view - a different way of seeing it. Doesn't it look a bit like a shrimp from that point of view! And what an impressive name it has.

Never see on of those Dave !! Brilliant shots, worthy of my award...
I'll have to keep going to the local Park... Only place we can go at the moment and keep a distance ...
