Hummingbird hawkmoths (hoshihoujaku) are amazing to watch, darting from flower to flower and hovering to drink the nectar. I’ve noticed plenty in the garden this week, but failed to get any pictures until yesterday evening. I used the flash which helped to reduce the motion blur, but these photos are still far from perfect. I’ll try again soon.
