9 August 2007

I took these last month but had one entered in the July Free Study Challenge on DP Challenge so didnt want to post them until it was over. This little guy is called a Hummingbird Clear Winged Moth. He is about three quarters of an inch long and his wings flap at a similar rate to the hummingbird. He was incredibly hard to photograph and I only got one chance as I havent seen one again since.

I got a bit of barn work done today and finished my prints and got them all mailed off. It was very hot and humid this morning and although the heat didnt deminish, the humidity dropped from about lunchtime so it was a bit more pleasant to be outside, still in the low 90s though. I think tomorrow is going to be in upper 80s and less humid too so I can get everything done before the weekend.
I hope everyone is well and think of you all often. ((((Hugs)))))

That is incredible that you could get such a good shot of this guy. If I remember correctly these move almost as fast as hummingbirds. Very neat shot Lori.

How did it do in the challenge?

Glad to hear the weather was a tad better.

Hope you have a fun time I the show too.
