Summer Memories

Hummingbird Moths are such unique creatures!

I so adore the Hawk/Hummingbird Moth but never see them on our flowers. I even have flocks, which they love, but still, nothing. A nice sight in the dead of winter.

And it's so hard to catch those wings in flight too! Bravo!

It's always nice to look at a summery scene when the winter chill gets to be a bit much. These moths are such fun to watch, and you got a great capture, Kerri!

Don't you just love the hummingbird moth? I saw one once in my garden and was fascinated!! I only wished I had my camera! Great capture!

I have seen them occasionally in my garden in the middle of NC. Last summer, butterflies and hummingbird moths swarmed my butterfly bush for 2 months. It was wonderful and my husband, who had never seen the moths before, was entranced by them.

I have never seen or heard of anything like this before. That is a gorgeous photo!

That' so cool! Love the detail of it and the motion blur of the wings is really cool too. I love the colors of the flower and the hummingbird moth.

What a beauty, I have not heard of, or seen, this moth before! Stunning and the purple thistle is gorgeous too.

Good job!

Blessings!

I have been wanting to see and photograph one of these for SO long!!! It's still on my list. What a fantastic photograph. I'm jealous! ;-)

Ahh ... memories of summer. Absolutely beautiful image! Aren't Hummingbird Moths lovely? I caught a glimpse of one last summer and was so fascinated by it that I forgot that I had a camera in my hands. It was gone before I could snap a photo or two.
