Hummingbird Hawk Moth
Great shot, superb POV and nice sharp detail, I like the way his wings are blurry giving the impression of the moth hovering. The colours are great too.
Regards Hilary :)
It's good to be able to critique a photo from you again as I haven't seen many posts from your hand (have been absent for a while myself).
This is a great shot! The colors are amazing and the hawk moth is very sharply focussed. Excellent picture. Well composed too. Well done & TFS!
Excellent macro Michael. Colorfull with very good sharpness and very good details. This is an excellent composition. Very good job. Well done. Thank you for posting.
Great action shot even a fast shutter speed did not stop his wings. Love these flowers too they really attract the insects. What does neat image do exactly and what settings do you recomend?

Wow, those wings are really beating fast if a 1/4000 won't stop them! Nice capture, Michael. I like the details and compostion a lot.

Hi Michael - aha - I see your Tamron works ...
And you had a good hand while making this wonderful shot - congrats to your new lens and this excellent shot. I love it so much, this moth is so interesting and beautiful. Also the colours - this violet is phantastic.
I also had such a moth here a week ago, it's amazing to see them staying in the air while drinking with their long tongue.
Thanks and greetings

The details are nice, clear and sharp.
superb colours. DOF is spot on and the POV is good.
Well composed and good notes. I'm not overly keen on the frame, but that's just a minor nit.
Thanks for posting, have a great week.
