[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This fascinating insect was photographed in my garden darting from one plant to another, and feeding via its long probe. I beleive it is becoming more common in England now, possibly another sign of Global Warming?

Hello David,thatīs a very nice capture. Excellent colours and very good sharp details. Composition and POV/DoF are great also. Very well done.

Hello David,
Very nice capture of this Hawkmoth which also invaded Sweden last summer. It came to our Buddleia bush but escaped before we got our cameras out. Very nice and sharp focus on the insect and flower (do you know what it is?) and I like the background.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Lovely shot. I tried this and never got that quality. I was even far from that actually.
