...often confused with hummingbirds or bumble bees...these little guys are particularly hard to catch (for me, at least) as they spook quite easily. Got lucky with a few shots yesterday in the backyard....all with 200 f4 micro.

This shot shows the transparent wings pretty well...

I learned that 1/250 is not fast enough to stop the "wings"....
