Day Two of the Nature Photography Challenge
December 06, 2015
Today is Day 2 of my #challengeonnaturephotography (post 7 nature photos in 7 days). I was nominated by Kevin Watson.
I took this shot four years ago in Fred's Field in the Celery Farm -- just love the pale purple of the Bee Balm through the clear wings of this Hummingbird Moth. Had to shoot at a very high speed to "freeze" the moth's wings.
This guy was in very good condition in more ways than one. It reportedly flaps its wings 25 to 30 times a second.
More on this amazing moth and other diurnal sphinx moths here.
