My entry for challenge72: Balance. Hummingbird Hawkmoth at RHS Rosemoor, Torrington, Devon in September last year. These moths are migrant visitors to Britain from Europe.
What skill and balance to hover so precisely that that tongue can sip from each flower!

As many butterflies as I've photographed...I don't have a picture of this moth...I know they are around where I live but only see them at late dusk as they are nocturnal. Absolutely beautiful capture ! Great challenge entry!
