p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · French Hummingbird Butterfly


I didn't see them in the morning or evening so I had to bite the bullet and shoot them at noon at 35C/ 95F.
Also I didn't bring my macro lens so I did use my 300f4 with 1.4TC instead.
Thanks for looking. Comments are always welcome.
Chris

What a cool series although shot in the heat of the day. Go figure. I have never seen one of these or their American counterparts in person and your shots especially 4-6 really show their likeness to hummingbirds. Nicely done and good job with less than optimal equipment.

Knowing how these bf's behave, I say hats off to you for getting such nice results. Your checkerspot is darned good too.

Fantastic set Chris. Those guys are really fast and flit about quite a bit. Love the inflight one.

Hi Chris:

Well presented series. Shooting hummer moths are much like hummingbirds. The point, you have to get faster ss than 1/800 when they are hovering. I would suggest with great light ISO 1600 and ss of 1/1600 or higher.

Neat pictures. My pick is #2. We had similar moths in Las Vegas, fun to watch.

I love butterflies and hate moths, but number 2 is almost likable , and it's for sure an excellent photograph.
Nice set, Chris.
