Hummingbird Hawk Moth (Macroglossum stellatarum) Photograph 2

A Hummingbird Hawk Moth (Macroglossum stellatarum). When I first saw it, I was surprised to see how stable it was when hovering.

 

I was fortunate in managing to photograph it with it's wings in different positions.

 

As a guide to it's size, the flower is about 24mm across.
