Hummingbird Moth....


Here's a photo I had in my files. This one, along with all the frog shots I posted last week were shot on film back in the early 1990's. The photo of the peeper on the pussy willow branch was actually taken in 1989.

Unbelievable! The best shot I've ever seen of one of these!

Terrific! I can't get over how orange/red this is! The ones that I see are more like a bumblebee on steroids. It's great how well you can see the wings in this.
