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!

Perfect POV and composition, lovely colours, good details, but first of all very interesting creature captured.
Blurred wings gave superb sense of motion.

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.

Great in flight of this beautiful moth, Greg.

Personal assessment of the photo: excelent. It looks like Snowberry Clearwing or Bumblebee Moth I took earlier last summer.
Strong visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: good.
Thank you Greg. A splendid work!
