Stephen J. Bridges … sent me this photo, which I identified as Macroglossum stellatarum, a Hummingbird Hawk-moth. Taken in France, about 50 km north of Saint Tropez at 900 meters elevation.
I’m passing it along, since I couldn’t find a photo of this species on What’s That Bug. Use it or lose it, but it’s a pretty good action shot.
We don’t get many submissions from France and this Hummingbird Hawkmoth is a nice addition.
