Another 'Moth in Flight'-female this time
5 months ago

The 'female' Clearwing Hawkmoth (hummingbird moth) came around after lunch, so I grabbed a few shots of her too. Here is one of the better ones IMO.

Without the high FPS of the V series this would be much more time consuming!! They are much faster than Bumble Bees around the flowers, and land/hover for less than a second at each blossom. Female is a little smaller than the male ...maybe 1 1/4 inch long ... or a little more.

(ISO1600-1/2000 sec @15FPS with V2/70-300VR CX combo ...handheld)
