Broad-bordered Bee Hawk-moth (Hemaris fuciformis), Hummelschwärmer, Emmenmatt, Emmental, Switzerland
Interesting fact: The wings were not always clear and transparent! The wings were covered with scales which were lost during the first strokes of wings. However this is a normal habit! I am not yet happy with these shots. This little hummy was even for me as a quick shooter too nervous... OK, I am happy...;-) Just for statistics: I shot 324 pics of this wonderful hummy, About 12 were acceptable, the others were just unsharp, no more hummy on the flower, to strong light (1 pm) ...
