Shades of Gray from Grayson Co, TX #775 – SPEEDY “HAWK” MOTH

14-07-17munson_4782 copy

While on patrol around the grounds looking for something to photograph, I came across this Hummingbird moth. I found they are also called Hawk moths and that seemed muy macho a name.

I have made images of these marvelous creatures before but I always used my macro kit and speedlights that resulted in a lot of motion even when I managed to get the little creature in focus. So I took a different approach. Cranked up the ISO to 1000 and went to shutter prefered exposure with the shutter set at 1/5000.

It made for a much more interesting image and he even looks kinda hawk like. You can read more about the Hummingbird moth here:  http://www.naturesmart.com/articles.php?articleID=105
