nice macro good colors--a little over exposed on the flower. focus is nice but the wings and tail need a bit of sharpening.

Bonjour Marjan
Ta prise de vue fixe une belle action. En fait, c'est bien un papillon, mais un papillon du groupe des Sphinx (Macroglossum? Hemaris?). Ces papillons se nourissent du nectar des fleurs, un peu à la manière des colibris.
Bonnes recherches

Hi Marjan,
Splendid shot of this moth. The POV is excellent, detailing its nectar sucking action with open wings. The fill flash has worked well here and the sheen on the flower petals look superb. Nice moment captured with superb focus. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

I think that it is a butterfly. Are you sure? Probably a noctuidae.

Hello Marjan,
This is a very clever capture - these are really hard to catch and it is unusual to see it settled like this! Sharp details and natural colors which look really good against the bright flower petals.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hello Marjan,
Amazing to see how fast this moth zig zag in the air. I believed that I did take a picture of a species that related to this moth but the quality is not so good. The moment for this shot is perfect. Colors and exposure are great. Very nice pov and composition.

Hi Mirjan, splendid moth (I think) with wonderful colors, lovely details and great sharpness, sorry I don't know the id, very well done, have a nice week end, ciao Silvio
