LOVE this, Robin. Very cool photos.
Beautiful Robin, I tried to photograph one yesterday and it would not sit still, he comes around once a day feeding on the Verbenas.I think they are really neat moths,great photos!-Cathy
Oh yes, these are gorgeous shots. Auto is not all bad.
Robin,I've been watching the hummingbird moths around here every evening. I don't even try to capture them... for some reason I've never been able to. Your photos are wonderful ... as always. I like the Verbena too.Meems
What beautiful pics! I've never seen a hummingbird moth. Thanks for sharing.
These are sure pretty.I haven't seen one of these moths in quite awhile. Blessings,Ruth
Just beautiful! You got some really fantastic shots!I've seen a few of the hmoths lately, too. They are fascinating to watch.Cameron
Great pictures Robin, I have seen lots of the hummingbird moths in the last few days- both here in Virginia and in North Carolina. They are fun to watch.
Robin those are wonderful shots of such strange creatures ! I'd probably run screaming in the other direction ? go figure .. and I call myself a gardener ? LOL
Beautiful photos, Robin! You are too humble; few of us can take such sharp pictures even in auto mode, especially of flying creatures.
Great captures! I saw one in the garden yesterday also.
Would you believe we have these in South Africa too?! I call them flying crayfish. Often see them on the herbs as evening falls.
I just love these moths!I use the stop action mode and auto focus sometimes is the best!Great photographs!Sherry
What great shots Robin! I haven't seen a hummingbird moth in quite a few years. I always thought they were neat little creatures!
Those are great shots, no matter what mode you used. Thanks for sharing.
I love these little guys, they're the closest my garden gets to real hummers. Auto mode does the job just fine for you, especially the last photo, with the moth in focus and the background blurred.
Those are some beautiful shots. The other day one come up to me with bee attitude, and at first I was even fooled it was so convincing! Very neat moths.
Hummingbird moths are some of my favorite wee beasties on this planet. They are so gentle and lovely. I'm with you - take advantage of the technology, kiddo.
I've tried and tried, but have been unable to capture a photo of this moth. This and the sphinx moth are two of my favorites.
Oh Robin what a perfectly wonderful photo series! Great 'catch' with you camera, Kim
We saw one of this just last night, while sitting on our porch.They are interesting and your pictures are wonderful.Balisha
Robin, I love these photographs...they are superb! You've just about convinced me to take the photography class! gail
I can't capture hummingbird moths in auto mode Robin so please give yourself lots of credit! They're gorgeous. So glad you are learning lots from your photography class.
great pics. at first glance the flowers appear to be buddleia
Hey, you sound like you're apologizing for using Auto mode. No need for that! Just look at these photos! A good photographer knows how to use her equipment and this proves you're a good one! Love this!
Such wonderful photos, I really enjoyed them all. I have a kitty named Lola, she looks so much like your's!! The children are so sweet, especially looking up at the Christmas Tree, with such awe in their faces. You have inspired me to work a lot harder in my yard, and to enjoy it more. Thank you so much, I can tell you're a wonderful person! ReEtta, I live in a little town called Pyrmont, close to Lafayette.
