Hi John...no I certainly don't mind that you fixed the link for Bob...
Bob, the reason the second one wasn't working is because you had the file extension as .jpeg instead of .jpg You'll get the hang of it!
And the shots look great, I'm still amazed because these little guys are faster even than hummers I think. I'm not in Puerto Rico yet...leave on Saturday. I decided to bring my new macro lens so hopefully I'll have something to post here when I get back!

I hope you do not mind but I would occassionally like to give you information about the subject in the pictures I post.
HBHM are incredible insects. They are very small, 1.5 inches, yet can fly from Africa to England in a matter of a few days. Their wings beat at approx 90+ beats per second and their short straight line speed varies from about 5 to 10 metres a second. VERY FAST.
For Uncle Frank. The Hummingbird was named after the moth, as they arrived on earth millions of years before Archaeopteryx. About 200.
They are not as strong a flier as the Convolulus Hawk Moth. This one can fly from Africa to above the Artic Cirle in about 3.5 to 4.5 days.
These pictures were taken at our holiday home in LE VALLEE de VERT France. We, ( Pam and I), are off again in June for a month. Cannot wait.
