If someone can help with the name of this moth I captured in my backyard, I’ll be very thankful!

Living on a farm, as I do, I’m provided unique opportunities to photograph plants and creatures. There are not many trees here, and no mountains or rocks; but there are a lot of fields! The bright sun gives me many lovely silhouettes to capture; while the rain brings out tiny plants and creatures. Sometimes I visit another town or province; and then my Canon EOS 550D works overtime.

    Did it’s flight remind you of a hummingbird moth? Kind of reminds me of a pic I have of a hummingbird moth. Nice shot!

  • Lol… This was a very nice model… It sat so quiet, gave me lots of time to capture 20+ photos to choose from…
