Broad Bordered Bee Hawkmoth (Hemaris fuciformis) 2014

When we were returning from our walk on Sunday, eagle eyed Elizabeth spotted this specimen happily feeding on our Verbena.  Interestingly it is where we photographed it in August last year.

She did a fantastic job with her small Canon Ixus 1100...

By the time I had got hold of my big Canon, it had of course moved on but I doubt I could have bettered these.

Try waiting with your Canon at roughly the same time on another day, supposedly they "trap line" and return to the same flower(s) at about the same time each day. Or at least they seem to do it with our Verbena :-)
