[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Le sphinx gazé (Hemaris fuciformis) ou
Sphinx du chèvrefeuille.
Nettement moins fréquent que son cousin le Moro-sphinx, le "Gazé" doit son nom commun à la transparence de ses ailes
Proche cousin du moro-sphinx, il a aussi une allure de colibri et s’observe en vol stationaire en train de butiner, ses ailes sont presque transparentes.

Hi Roland,
a nice close-up in-flight shot, you even managed to frozen the wings of this fast flying insect.
Sharp fine details, nice natural colours.
Well done.

Regards
Gert

Ciao Roland, great macro of beautiful Sphinx, splendid sharpness, fine details and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

bonsoir roland
c'est pas facile de des photos corrects de sphynx parce'ils bougent tout le temps mais tu as superbement réussie, on peux presque compter chaque poil de son corps tellement l'image est nette, très bel effet de lumière sur les plantes, bravo !
Passe une bonne nuit
