By JohnoP
Boy - these are not easy to capture! This shot one of many taken at Overbecks in Salcombe yesterday - these guys are fast and don't hang around for long - fascinating to watch!

Agreed, very difficult. Much better than my efforts to capture it. Well caught, Malcolm.

Now I see why they are so named. Very nice catch and it does look difficult to get a clear shot. High quality photo.

Oh wow! I've tried many times to capture these moths without success. Well done. I like the colours, especially the separation between foreground and background.

Hello John, you have a grand capture here as this must be a fast action moth...good crisp exposure displaying fine array of colour.
