Superb in-flight of M. stellatarum feeding on buddleia. Excellent POV and sharpness against a neutral BG and a pleasing composition.
TFS this beauty,
Amicalement et bon weekend,

I like this distance towards the subject. Often we see close up photos, almost macro images with a shallow depth of field.
I have nothing against the former. But this doesn't look like a lens test especially in terms of the way the colourful moth is photographed.
A nit is the somewhat out of focus flower and as a consequence the increasing the blown highlights.
Greenish OOF BG is well done.
the hawkmoth you show on your picture is a species of the genus Hemaris,
most probably Hemaris fuciformis.
Very good focus on the flying insect.
Best wishes, Peter

alors pas encore en vacances :)
Agréable macro colorée, cet insect est bien saisi dans son vol stationnaire. Le pov est intéressant, tu trouves une diagonale originale avec cette fleur.

Tu as eu de la chance avec ce sphynx fuciforme (Hummelschwärmer), que l'on voit bien plus rarement que le Macroglossum stellatarum chez nous. Bel arrière-plan et des fleurs bien intéressantes.

great in-flight capture, well composed, crisp and clear, with a perfectly supporting background. And indeed you have captured something much less common than the vagrant Macroglossum stellatarum: Our native Hemaris fuciformis (Hummelschwärmer) as Peter (batu) already stated.
Thank you! With best regards,

Hi Robi. I saw one in our garden one hot summer a few years ago but have never seen one since . maybe one day again. . You have captured this one with good detail and natural colours. I like the different coloured stripes in the body. well done TFS.

I know how tricky it is to capture this Moth because it never sits still and keeps on moving from point to point in a tearing hurry.
That way, you have managed a fairly clear shot of this difficult subject with fairly good details and colours on it.

I like this full of lights and summer colours in-flight close-up. Great timing, wonderful lights, crisp sharpness of the plant and fine insect. I also like excellent framing and composition of the shot. Bravo and TFS.
