    I was playing around our Butterfly Bush with the Cosmicar TV lens, trying to get a few pics of the butterflies, when a Hummingbird Moth flew right in front of my face - literally. Usually they won't get close, but I was mostly stationary, and this one seemed to not notice me. I turned the camera toward the moth as quickly as I dared, and fired off some shots as I refocused. A few turned out quite well.
