  2. Sorry to correct you, this is Hemaris thysbe (Hummingbird clearwing), but the shot is very good nonetheless.

    i had to stand still for a few minutes...they are a little better than hummers for staying around

  15. Outstanding!! I am so jealous!!! I have dozens of bumblebees and one lonely misdirected hummer. No moths or butterflies yet!! (At least, not when I am out there with my camera poised for the shot) :rolleyes:

  19. I finally saw my first hummingbird clearwing!!


    I saw my first hummingbird clearwing this afternoon in my garden!! It was so exciting and of course I was just setting up my 200mm micro and didn't have the tripod or monopd handy :frown:. I tried to shoot hand held, but he was too quick. I also stood as still as a statue and watched him flit from flower to flower, but no luck. At least I know he likes my butterfly garden. :biggrin: I'll be ready next time!!
  20. These are easier than Hummingbird Hawkmoths because they have to rest their front feet on the flower to give them stability before they start to feed. Try and remember this and you may have some luck.
