A Pretty Picture for Sunday - Hummingbird Hawk Moth

We have just had a twelve day stay in Poland, spending a few days at my brother in law's little wooden house on the side of a hill, and the rest of the time with my husband's cousin Bogusia.

This picture was taken in Bogusia and Waldek's garden.  The zinnias were alive with butterflies this year, but I only saw one of these moths.  We don't see them very often in England, so I took loads of photos.  This one is my favourite - he looks like a helicopter aiming for the landing pad.


  1. what a beautiful photo thanks for sharing!

    1. .. and thank you too Mary Ellen.

      I'm so glad you like this photo. It was a very lucky shot, because these moths never keep still. He was a blur in every picture, but in this one he was blur in the right place.

  3. That photo is Nat Geo quality! Great job! Love it...
