    Since Hummingbird Moths flit from flower to flower quickly, I decided to try Jaf's suggestion, and spent about 30 minutes next to the flower bed. I deleted a bunch of photos, but got a few decent ones using my Vivitar 200/3.5. Some are not as sharp as I'd like, but trying to keep up with the moths was like herding cats . . . or little kids. I need more practice to keep a steady hand with the long lens, too.


    PS: I'm going to try some Golden Hour shots a bit later.
