Action shot I'm pretty proud of ;-) A Humming-bird Hawk-moth (Macroglossum stellatarum) feeding on some flowers. This butterfly is the size of a small humming bird and will be seen only in hot summers. It flits from flower to flower almost never stopping to rest. For a picture of a resting specimen see here. For a little movie, info and many beautiful pictures see this page.. The German name "Taubenschwänzchen" translates to "Dove's Tail".
