Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 30th October, 2011)
Humming Bird Moth
Only seen one of these on the telly,
very good photo.
Never seen one of these, only heard about them. What a fantastic shot, with such great detail. Congratulations you must be so patient to have caught it this close up. Good camera I say.
I've seen these in France - where and when were you lucky enough to see this in Wigan?
A terrific shot. Perhaps a little more DOF would have got more detail.
Superb photo that John, can't say if I have ever seen one of those moths, are they in the UK?
