I found a nice surprise on my deck after a brief rain.....

A Hummingbird Moth. 
These creatures are quite interesting!

I LOVE their wings!

Oh my gosh! These are wonderful!
I didn't know these existed until last summer (through Camera Critters) and I've yet to see one.
You captured it beautifully!

My post is here: Carletta’s Captures.

Wow! What great pictures!

It doesn't look like those wings could support that fat body. Amazing.

Oh, Kerri! these are awesome. I haven't seen any yet but we used to get them all the time where we lived, about 1/2 hour south of here.

Amazing pictures! I'd probably die of excitement if I saw one of these moths, or die of disappointment that I didn't have my camera handy!

Jayne said...

Oh Kerri, he's beautiful! Such great, clear images you caught too. :c)

Great series of photos! I don't know if I've ever seen one of these before.

Rob Ripma said...

Wow, that is such a fantastic series of shots! Well done!

Mary said...

Wonderful photos! I love these things. I got a couple photos last year, but the only one that I've seen so far this year was very illusive and wouldn't give me a good opportunity. These are the best photos I've seen of them. Lovely!
