BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

HUMMINGBIRD MOTH

Hummingbird MothA friend had some success photographing a hummingbird moth at a wildlife garden we frequent. Luck was on our side too on a recent visit. This moth beats its wings at great speeds so I was pleased to get this photo and several others in decent focus (of the hundreds I took). Not an easy subject but oh, when it works😊.

  5. Nice Belinda! They are fun to photograph! We liked going to Longwood Gardens In Pennsylvania to photograph in them in their meadow area. They are extremely active and quick moving, so it took some practice and high shutter speeds!!

  6. Great capture Belinda! I know how hard it is to ‘nail’ one of these critters, thank goodness for big memory cards and delete buttons!
