Three superb captures, Annette, I can never capture them in flight, only when they are resting, and that isn't very often Smile Carol

As soon as I saw it I was thinking. This seems to be a moth but it looks a lot like a hummingbird.
Nicely captured.

Each and every one captured so well, Annette, the body crisp with wing blur which you'd want given the nature of feeding of these moths. V 3's closer crop could well stand in tue V 1 slot but the fuller picture at V 1 is my favourite.

All three are excellent. I've had the pleasure of one of these visiting the pond-side just last year in rather better condtions than 2012 has offered and know their turn of speed!

They're lovely little moths - we get them sometimes here - and I know how fast they zoom around. Well captured Annette with a fine sense of movement!

Wow! Just a super shot! I'm green with envy!Smile
In response to your comment: yes, a place outside the city, meant for recreation and garden, is called dacha. There this shot was taken, indeed.
Je vous remercie beaucoup!Smile

Wow !!....impressive shot !!.......lovely detail in the moth, yet still retaining wing notch !!

I've tried to snap these beauties, but no success....they're just too 'flitty' for my reactions !!

Brilliant timing to catch its whirring wings, you get a marvellous feeling of motion looking at these. I did not see a single hummingbird hawkmoth this year, there were quite a few around last autumn
