|Macroglossum stellatarum/ Hummingbird Hawk Moth|
A day flying species, it hovers like a hummingbird in front of flowers inserting its long tongue into the flower. You can hear it as it beats its wings.

You managed to get a lot of sharpness. Rather difficult as the insect is in flight. Matching background with natural light.
Hi Cristian, superb macro of lovely moth with fantastic details, splendid focus, excellent sharpness, great capture of this fast creature, very well done, ciao Silvio

ai reusit o fotografiea cu un subiect greu de prins. Poza este foarte buna, culorile vii detaliile foarte bune atat la insecta cat si floarea.
