Wow- terrific capture! Wonderful clarity and beautifully posed. Wonder what the flowers are. Quite the spider's nest on them!

Excellent in-flight capture, love the wing position, curled proboscis, and detail.

Superb detail from head to tail - and you captured the extended proboscis! Brilliant image, Karl.

Great capture of the moth in flight. Love the curled proboscis. very nice composition given the flight image. Beautiful moth too. Flowers look like great lobelia.
