Artist's Description

While out photographing some butterflies in Kanata just the other day I happened upon an unusual moth, what is it I thought, looked a bit like a flying lobster, acted a lot like a hummingbird, turns out it’s called a Hummingbird moth. Very hard to photograph since they do not land on the flower but hover like a hummingbird with its probiscus sucking in the juices of some wild flowers but for only half a second or so, but patience perseveres.
Taken in Kanata, Ont, Canada with Canon 40D and Canon 70-200 f4 L lens
