I figured you had to have used a fast shutter speed here - these guys's wings go at an amazing speed. Well caught.

Have only see one of these little firecrackers around here and was astonished at the speed of their wings. How you captured this one so perfectly is beyond me! Grin Fabulous details and what a lovely combination between Moth and Daff! Another one saying "sorry, no UA left"!

Curiously enough I saw an item on the BBC's One Show only yesterday about hummingbird moths and how they can memorise where the best/most nectar is to be found, and that they can be conditioned to visit flowers of a colour they would not normally seems that blue is their favourite.
Wonderful detail in this spring image, Annette,

Excellent timing to capture the moth approach the daffodil and so sharp!
The daffodil looks as if it's bowing his head to greet the visitor.
