[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When I walked around in San Feliú de Guixols (close to Girona) I saw something that looks like a Hummingbird. Looking a bit closer it was a butterfly, drinking from the nectar of some flowers.
We call it "Taubenschwänzchen", the eglisch name is as far as I know hawk-moth.

This moth never stops even when it was feeding.
A bit soft on focus but a great shot of this moth!
Very good BG!
