STOPS ALONG THE WAY

HUMMINGBIRD MOTH (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

25 Comments

Hummingbird MothI saw a hummingbird moth just once this year, in mid-September. A friend introduced me to these insects a few years ago and every summer I keep an eye out for them. They are remarkable looking, and unlike many moths feed during the day, so if you’re really lucky you might just see one. In the second photo the moth looks like its had one too many. 😊

  3. Each year they visit our garden but I haven’t been able to take a decent photo… Your captures are very special as it is so hard to shoot these moths👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

  4. Great captures, Belinda. These fellows are fascinating. Despite what Ted said above, other years we’ve had them at our patio flowers quite a bit, this year I only saw one or two. 🙂

  10. Nice images Belinda! They are tough to photograph because they are constantly moving. Plus extremely fast wing movement!
