A Hummer in the Sun
Bovingdon (BMT): Almost 30°C yesterday with blazing sunshine. I got lucky with the/a Hummingbird Hawk-moth briefly coming to the Buddleja at the Brickworks again. Managed to get 6x the shutter speed possible last Thursday, which still isn’t fast enough but about as good as I can get with my equipment. Decided the image worked better with the Hawk-moth “colour popped”. In the afternoon, another (or the same) Hawk-moth was feeding on Buddleja elsewhere on site.
6 Painted Ladies yesterday, all around the same Buddleja and all new except one which had lingered from the previous day.
