[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yesterday I posted a Hummingbird Clearwing moth and today I give you the Snowberry Clearwing, also known as the (Bumblebee Moth).

The distinctive yellow and black banded markings are similar to those of the common Bumblebee. Again this moth is active during the daytime and especially towards evening.

You have nailed it, Ron! This is the best picture of a Clearwing Moth in hovering action I have ever seen! Every detail is as sharp as it can be, and what's more, it's a very colorful and attractive composition with the flowers.
Hats off to your professional acumen and dexterity as a nature photographer!

Hi Ron,absolutely fantastic,the last were good but this is the best,what a sharpness and what a timing to take it with the open wings,very well done! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Ron,
Splendid capture with impressive details and colors. It is very difficult to catch those insects in flight....because of the high speed they fly.....

Attractive series of photographs composed with beautiful flowers and this moth that you baptized like hummingbird. Details of the insect that are most admirable for having been caught in mid-flight. Congratulations, RON !!!!

Hello Ron
une magnifique prise et bonne gestion de la netteté et du flou en arrière.
Belle qualité des ailes transparentes.

Ron this is GREAT!!!
so good sharpnessand super good light and beautiful colours
great shot thanks gr lou

Hi Ron,
Nicely composed photo, but the moth and the flowers are oversharpened, or the image was overcropped. Probably some member mates saw a different photo - in my opinion this isn't your best. Just a personal opinion, obviously.
Best regards, László
