something lurking in the woodshed

An unusual sight locally at the best of times, a humming bird moth taking an interest in our woodshed, and a photograph (1/3200 at f8) taken in 2012 that shows their amazing ability to hover while feeding on nectar.

Great shot of the hummingbird hawk moth. I had a brief opportunity to capture one recently but couldn't get the settings right for a decent image. I've yet to see one around Higher Downgate.
