I think it is a Macroglossum stellatarum, Hummingbird Hawkmoth.
Well done.

Very well captured Tamer.
Great details and good composition.
Some information about the moth would be good.

Just amaising!
An exellent time stop!
Peaty no notes about.
Its a moth. The specie is Macroglossum stellatarum (Linnaeus, 1758), known as "Humming-bird hawk-moth" in english.
Deserves more then 2 points!
Keep on going and TFS!

Hi Tamer, great shot :)

They are fast. Nice shot. I like the very little blur from the movement of the wings. Without the blur it woukldn't look natural since in real we don't see the wings at all.

Excellent in-flight capture of this beautiful hummingbird moth! The composition is great, colors are natural and bright and sharpness is spot on! Superb details! The BG is great and really compliments the shot! Technically perfect! Congratulations and TFS!
