I went to the Univ. Arb. to try to shoot Hummingbirds.
I found the Moth again instead.

Great job freezing the wings in the perfect position. I love the bg and the color combination.
Good light,

Super in-flight image, and a colorful flower - nice compensation for the lack of hummingbirds.

We see lots of hummingbird images, Karl - and very few of these! Your brilliant shots of these little buzz bombs are a real treat, and this is another beautifully detailed view. Well done!

Nice shot Craig, I've seen these a couple of times and they are fast.
