I believe this is called a Hummingbird Clearwing Moth. Taken a week or so ago on a Butterfly Bush. I am not really into insect, but lately I have taken a liking to Dragonfly's, and this moth was pretty interesting. I was pretty happy to get a in flight shot.

Great capture, that first one is wonderful, sure proves the theory timing is everything. All are very well done.

You did a great job! You captured that moth just before he/she lands on the flower. :D
