Hummer season starts here!

This afternoon, I finally managed to time one of my [infrequent] visits to the canteen with that of a Hummingbird Hawkmoth. The Valerian has sprung up nicely in recent weeks, after all the rain we've had, and I think this is the first 'hummer' of the year to appear in this traditional spot.

photos taken with Canon EOS 30D, EF 300mm f/4L IS USM


  1. Great photo. I heard a report of a hummingbird hawkmoth way back in early April, but nothing since. It's just been too cold and wet!

  2. Great photo Katie!

    I expect I'll have to wait a while to see one.
    There is no way I'd get a record shot let alone such a nice composition!!

  3. Nice photo and a nice blog too.

  4. Great photo! I'm off to find out more about that crazy lookin thing!
