Broad Bordered Bee Hawkmoth (Hemaris fuciformis) 2015

We have seen and photographed these creatures for the last two years and it is still enjoyable watching the speed and accuracy of their movement between flowers.

These were taken yesterday on the Salvia "Hot Lips" with a Canon 50D on 8000/sec shutter speed.


Hope you enjoyed them.

Oooooo just fabulous! I haven't seen one this year yet and was thinking the other day it was about time they turned up in the garden.
