Hi Josep,

A very good shot of the Hummingbird-hawkmoth. Good focus showing nice detail in the body with the movement in the wings giving the sense of movement. Not an easy shot to take, well done and thanks for sharing.

Hello Josep Ignasi,
Fantastic catch with perfect timing, beautiful colours, good details and well composed.Thanks for sharing.Best regards Siggi

Hola Josep

Vaya has conseguido a este insecto tan grande, que es dificil fotografiarlo por lo rápidos que van, aunque se consigue cuendo para en vuelo como los colibris, yo los he visto solo de paso pero sin pararse, son fabulosos y originales.

Una fantastica foto y buen momento para hacerla, creo que en ese momento te estaba vigilando. Felicidades..

Un saludo de Antonio

Hello Josep,
You got a fantastic shot of this beautiful Hawkmoth from a nice angle showing great focus on its eye and very fine sharp details of its abdumen. Very clever, as this little one flits around very rapidly and is hard to capture. Very well timed and a lovely soft background too. Excellent work!
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Hola JI,
Muy buena toma de M. stelletarum comiendo por una flore blanca. Me gustan el POV, colores naturales, nitidez y fondo. No es facíl!
No la he visto en Suecia este año, perque esta imagen es un compensación!
Gracia y tienes que un buen fin de semana,
Un abrazo de Ivan

Hola Josep
Ils sont impressionnants ces insectes, à voler sur place
Merci, à bientôt
Amitiés
Laurent

Hello Josep,
Excellent action shot with beautiful colors, great sharpness, fine details and good POV. Well done!

Hi MF Josep,

Amazing macro of a hawkmoth in-flight! Very sharp, with a proper and maximal aperture to keep the hawkmoth sharp. The maximal shallow DOF selection also has provided a fine blurred background too.
TFS and have a nice WE!
Cheers,

Bayram

Hi Ignasi,
A nice capture of this beautiful Hummingbird Hawk Moth in flight. Very well composed with good details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hola Ignasi,
Has aconseguit capturar amb nitidesa la Macroglossum stellatarum i, realment, és força difícil. Felicitats.
Ferran

Hi Josep

This is a super photo of this most amazing instect. They are very rarely seen in England but I was lucky to see one of these about a week ago. Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me.

Pin sharp at the head and eye.

Great shot

Aleks

Hola Josep,
Me caigo sentado!... a 1/1600s y aún hay un sensible "moving" en las alas!... esos si que son unos super-insectos!... aquí tengo algunas especies similares, y ni cerca de poderles hacer una foto!... Buen trabajo!... Feliz semana!
Jesús

Hi Joosep,
a dreamshot of this nervous flying marvel. Thanks for presenting it on TN.
Best regards
Dietrich

Bonjour Josep
Très jolie performance cette macro en plein vol. Tu as beaucoup de patience !
Content de savoir que tu as apprécié la jolie région de Chateauneuf du Pape.
Amitiés,
Hervé

Has conseguido congelarla perfectamente, y el enfoque fijado en el ojo ya ni te cuento... Respecto al color yo le hubiera bajado un poco la exposición y subido un poco el contraste, peroya te digo que de nitidez perfecta!

Un saludo y gracias por comentar mi primera foto!
Robert
