Hummingbird Hawk-moth.

By bricurtis
In the garden with camera on Sunday hoping a Sparrowhawk was going to turn up.
This moth appeared and started darting around the flowers.....Waved my camera around a bit and luckily managed 1 in focus shot. !

Thanks for all the awards on previous image...PM,s of appreciation sent to all.

Thanks for stopping by.

One in focus is a success, Brian.
We can even see the moth's eye.

Lovely capture Brian. They are one of my favourite moths to watch. You've got the body, proboscis, antennae and eyes sharp and the blur of the wing to show it hovering - spot on - gets my award!
