Re: Hummingbird Moth!

Thanks for the info Tom,

I think you are correct in the ID.  I was at a loss, not knowing a thing about these until a few days ago!  We have a big row of the Black Currant bushes, all in bloom now, and this is where we've seen them.  I doubt I could have caught this with my Canon 7d or the SX50 my wife uses.  The FZ1000 is continuing to really impress me.

Now, I think I'm going to have to try the 4k video for stills, once I figure it out.  We have several cloudy/rainy days coming, so I probably won't get a chance soon though.  Any thoughts on shutter speed to stop the wings?
