Leading you up the garden path. Caught on the Wing.

Hummingbird Hawk-moth.


I have waited nearly two years to get a shot of this moth. And two days ago, out of the blue, I got lucky!




    • Thank you , Zoe. This was as lucky…. and difficult as shot as you can imagine.
      It was flitting up and down all over the shrub and hovering for just under a second at each tiny flower . Yes, I timed it! I was so excited I almost forgot to put the camera on Macro!


  1. Well done, Ark! This must have been such an exciting moment! Fabulous image! I know how hard these are to photo. I haven’t seen one here for some years now, and this is a treat!
