I took at least 50 photos yesterday, and deleted about 40. I don’t usually have such a poor outcome… but nature, light breezes, and sprinkles of rain can play havoc on a scene.
I did manage to get three insects, which made me happy! Two were taken with my 40mm fixed lens.
This Hemaris Thysbe paid me a visit when I was trying to photograph some lilacs. Well, I failed miserably on the lilacs, but Mr. HT saved the day.
And, one of my favourite flowers, the anemone is in bloom. It’s sort of taking over the garden, and that’s fine with me.
Thank you for stopping by, and here’s to a productive day for all!

this is when insects are wonderful in images and you really caught some beauties. Love that first one so much.
awesome shots! really like the hummingbird moth!
Beautiful images! I’d say the effort was well worth your time even if some of the shots didn’t come out how you wanted. Happens to me a lot! Is that third shot a hummingbird moth? I’ve always wanted to see one.
Hi Gail, yes it is a hummingbird moth (Hemaris Thysbe).
These are really beautiful, Barb, especially the anemone.
Barb, under the circumstances, you did outstanding! I finally got some time after work to go outside and shoot BUT the rains over the past week basically took everything out and what was left look really sorry. Hoping to post my few shots soon…and they are FEW.
