Humming Bird hawk moth.

By simmo73
Many thanks again to all for support on the Hoverfly and flower images,
(all U/As thanked) I am really very grateful and never take it for granted.
Today's upload's were taken whilst enjoying a few drinks in our front garden the night before last. Unfortunately they had a very high iso due to the high shutter speed. However as these insects are not often seen I thought I would share with you all.
Hope you like.

So late but I finally arrived! Saw on of these on Anglesey in 2019 and not seen one before or since. A most stunning insect and your captures have caught it perfectly Geoff.

Very well taken.

An excellent trio, Geoff, have to go for the lead, as it stands out better from the background 😃👍
