Ten years ago, when I first managed to photograph a furry fly hovering in the garden, I mis-identified a Bee Fly as being a Hummingbird Hawk Moth. Well - this time I am sure I found one. On returning from a walk-about I saw lots of bees on and near the Lavender bushes but something different caught my attention. A grey furry body with bright orange wings, a black and white 'tail' and a long proboscis. It was constantly in flight, sometimes darting about, sometimes hovering to feed on nectar. Not once did I see it land on anything.
I watched for a while then thought to fetch a camera to try for some shots. Darn near impossible. With the bright Sunlight I couldn't see anything on the cameras LCD display so I had to point and hope. Out of eight or nine shots these are about the best, though not as good as I wanted.
I also had just one chance to take a short video. This is a small crop from the original. The moth started off in a good position but ended up right at the bottom of the frame.
I will keep looking out for it and, hopefully, achieve some better results another day.
