I had one helluva time catchin' this guy in action. I mentioned on a different photo this thing behaves very much like a hummingbird ... It doesn't have to land on the flower to drink the nectar so there are lots of quick, darting motions! This is about as sharp of an image as I could get this morning; will try again later in the week!
Heavens above, I have never even SEEN one Kevin never mind photographed one.
I shall henceforth shift my attention from dragonflies (of which I am sick anyway) to hummingbird (and bumblebee) moths.
Excellent capture! Your hard work paid off. That's one good photo!
Maybe we can find you one and send it to you like Gandalf did, Jethro.
Jethro, I can't say for certain that I had ever seen one before this summer. If we're to believe everything we find on the internet, it looks like the NC triad is out of luck ... ?
Liam, Thank you - I do appreciate that!
Greetings from Davidson, ya'll!
Check out Michel's photo of a Thai relative of this moth.
