This is one of the Hummingbird Moths that visited the Lantana and Zinnias today. There were 3 in one flower bed and two in another at the same time. They are so interesting to watch.

I have been married for 44 years. I have two daughters and two granddaughters. I have always loved photgraphy but never took it seriously until the past couple of years. I got a Canon 40D and loved it. I took some photography classes at Bedford’s Cameras in Little Rock, AR. I recently upgraded to a Canon 7D, which I love. I love nature photography and you will find that is what I take the most photographs of. I love all kinds of nature but especially love Butterflies and Humming birds.

    Beautiful work Brenda

  • Thanks Larry. I have quite a few shots of the Hummingbird Moths but they are so pretty and each one has it’s own features and I can not pass them up.
