In Flight

Hemaris fuciformis

This is Macroglossum stellatarum, Eng: hummingbird hawk-moth, Ger: Taubenschwänzchen. It doesn’t land on flowers when slurping (sipping, ingesting, …?) feeding on nectar, but hovers in front of them, like hummingbirds do. It is also Very Quick and Rather Hard To Photograph With It Actually Being In Focus. So I am quite pleased with these photos!
