Like a Tiny Bird

I was doing some work in the garden on Saturday when this Hummingbird Hawk Moth appeared. Having seen them in the garden before I knew that it might not hang around, so I rushed in to grab the camera. Luckily it stayed long enough to be able to set up the camera properly and get some reasonable shots. They really are like tiny birds.

I have never heard of or seen one of these moths! I'm glad you captured photos of him before he took off! Great shots!

Thanks, it only stayed for about 5 minutes. I would have liked to have had a better go at it really, a bit of a rushed job.
