Hummingbird Hawk Moth. I had to Jack up the ISO to freeze the wing movement of this moth as the name suggests the wings beat is many 1000s times a minute. The high ISO created a lot of noise which had to be removed in post processing.

Large for detail please.

A wonderful capture, I have only ever seen one ( I didn't know what it was ) they don't come this far north that often, it was rare enough for me to log it on a site
