Great pic! Aren't they just the coolest moth? The first time I saw one I couldn't figure out what the heck it was. Looked like a cross between a hummer and a bee.

I really enjoyed this hummingbird moth picture. I take these insects whenever I can here in the Bulgarian mountains and have at least one on my site. They never settle so are quite difficult to capture but as they're quite common here I'll keep trying. Love the colours.

All the best
