[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Moro-sphinx ou sphinx colibri:
Lorsqu’il va d’une fleur à l’autre, il a des mouvements brusques et rapides ; et il reste en état de vol stationnaire.
Il ne se pose pas ; il vole sans cesse, tout en enfonçant sa longue trompe dans les corolles des fleurs, contrebalançant l’action de la pesanteur par la vibration continue des ses ailes. »

Hello Roland,
Excellent frozen macro of this insect. 1/3200 sec. was a very good choice. Beautiful colours and great sharpness.
Regards,
Peter

Ciao Roland, great macro of very fast moth, splendid sharpness, fine details and fantastic colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Excellent sharpness to this capture of a hovering Hummingbird Moth, Roland.
You have frozen the subject to perfection with exceptionally sharp focus on every part of it.
The composition with the flower is just beautiful.

Hello Roland,
not easy to catch these flyers in the air but you managed well.
Pity about the busy surroundings, a cleaner BG had make the insect stand out better but that nature,
just to accept.
The insect is pretty sharp and the short shutter speed you get wings almost frozen.
Well done.

Regards
Gert

Hello Roland,
