Hummingbird Hawk-moth

photos taken with Nikon Coolpix 995


  1. fantastic shots alas with my tescos 17 quid camera out of my league!my second favourite moth after the magpie.

  2. What great beasts.. I had one in my garden in St Neots a few days ago but was too slow with my Coolpix...!!

  3. The great shots just keep on coming. At the risk of being photographically presumptious, can I ask what photoshop enhancement (if any) you apply before uploading your shots? If I can get close to the quality you routinely turn out I'd be chuffed. Cheers.

  4. Hi Clive. The only enhancements I make to my photos are sometimes a bit of cropping, sometimes a small amount of 'Unsharp mask' and I often play around with the levels a bit. I usually resize them to 400 px wide and that's it really - nothing too complicated as I don't really know how to use Photoshop!

  5. Great shots of my favourite moth. Used to see these guys on Cape Clear in Sept...

    Have recently started a blog here in Sweden at http://blogbirder.blogspot
