Hummingbird hawk-moth

Every now and then we spot one -or sometimes two- hummingbird hawk-moths (kolibrievlinder in Dutch) on the buddleja in our garden. Apparently our warm and long Summer attracts them. It's amazing to see them behave like actual hummingbirds.

We tried before to photograph them, it's not that easy as they are very agile and don't stay long at one place. I made these photos today.

10 opmerkingen:

  1. They're supposed to be here but I don't see them very often. You've got some great shots there.

  2. Great shots! I never heard of that hummingbird hawk moth before. You captured the eyes perfectly.

  3. You are right about difficult to photograph... but you did very well.

  4. Wat knap gedaan, had nog nooit van deze vlinder gehoord. Je moet vast veel geduld hebben gehad om hem op de foto te krijgen!


Don't be shy and leave a comment. I'd love to read what you think!
