Macroglossum stellatarum drinking nectar from these flowers. A really fantastic flyer - fast and precise.

H Pierre,
this is a beautiful and a skillful capture of the moth in flight. It is so beautiful and well taken at the right moment.
The scene of the proboscis jutting out is stunning.
Well presented shot.
