[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
At least! During our Bulgarian holidays we walked at hilly area near Obzor. There was plenty of insects unknown in Poland. Big butterflies, grasshoopers, bees, spiders. Suddenly I spotted something small and fast flying. It was one of hummingbird looking moths. I captured similiar ones past year on Crimean Penisula, but this one was first captured without flash. I don't know which specie is it exactly, I hope TNers will help with ID.

Congrats Greg! Great capture of this small and fast flying Hummingbird Hawk-moth (as Sebnum has named it).
The thistle-type of flower and the cobweb and moth are all nice and sharp. You must have been very pleased with the result. Good one!

Wow, I'm a little jealous, what beautiful motive with excellent sharpness and colours.
I like the light shining through the wings and the little shaddow of the moth on the thistle.
Wonderful, thanks

Grzegorz, congratulations.

I do know these shots are not easy to get.

I enjoy pov and composition. Both the insect and the flower are very beautiful.

A very pleasing shot.

Hi Greg
Wonderful, crisp, clear sharp shot. Good details right down to the fibres showing from below the flower. Nice light. Congrats!

Great in flight of this beautiful moth, Greg.

You caught with very good details. Well composed and good POV.
The colouts are nice too.

Strong visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
