It's a long time ago That I saw your last posting. Welcome back. And with a wonderful macro. Amazing sharp detailed hawk-moth in very beautiful colors and taken from the best POV. Excellent quality!

Welcome back, neighbour. :-) It's always good to see your posts. Very interesting image, the insect is tack sharp, the background is noise free and the lights are gorgeous. The only issue with the pic (in my opinion, of course), the out of focus flower in the foreground, this should have been cropped (at least partially). Otherwise a stunning shot.
Kind regards from Ireland, LÃ¡szlÃ³

Tack sharp macro of the hawk-moth. I have seen these a few times in this part of the world, but have not had a camera in hand. Shutter speed of 1/1250 was able to freeze all but the wings.

When the ace photographers of the glorious era of TN return here occasionally with their images, I feel elated, Gert.
It is extremely difficult to capture a Hawk Moth in its hovering stance; I too have tried it several times.
In this capture, you have obtained exceptional focus and sharpness even though the whirring wings are a blur.
Thanks for the link to the larger image. The small size on TN sucks.

What a fine looking specimen of what we in the US would normally call a hummingbird moth. I love the contrasting black, white, ruby red and olive green colors. The detail is exceptional and the exposure is perfect. The clean blurred background is a real bonus to an already lovely shot. Awesome capture!!
