Hummingbird and Hummingbird Moth
This evening I was sitting outside with my mom and dad when I spotted some activity at the hummingbird feeder. I was surprised to see two small hummingbird moths along with several hummingbirds. I was able to get pretty close to them but the pictures still didn't turn out too well since it was getting dark and I couldn't use the flash. The hummingbird moth almost landed on my camera a couple of times. I was surprised at how close I got, but it flits around so fast that it's nearly impossible to photograph. The hummingbird picture looks funny, almost fake, especially the wings, but that is how it turned out.I just lightened the shadows, cropped and sharpened it a bit.
Mother and I spent the night in Brown County and attempted to see Nashville and shop at the outlet mall in Edinburgh. I say attempted because her health isn't particularly good and the stifling heat was too much for her. So our trip was cut short but I still enjoyed the short time I had there.
