[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Macroglossum stellatarum (Sphingidae).
This photo took a while to capture and a lot of sweat
since it was warm like hell. While this specimen moved from flower to flower for a nice drink I could only dream about my future cool drink... but it was worth the while.

Hallo Oz
It was worth all the sweat and heat because it is a great macro with fine details and lovely colours. Great point of view, composition and ideal blurred background. Really an eye-catcher. Just love the movement of the wings. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Bravo Oz! Truly spectacular capture of this energy hungry little machine! Awesome point of view, briliant dept of field, eye pleasing composition and lovely natural colors! Bravo!
