First time I saw a Sphinx butterfly also called Moro-sphinx, Sphinx colibri.
They fly and hover like a hummingbird.
I was sitting in my garden and suddenly I saw at the other side of the garden what I tough to be a big bee.
Still on my chair I just raise my camera and toke 2 or 3 shots and then It was gone.
Very happy with the result even though it is a heavy cropping.

Nice work. The K-5 DA* 300 was a nice combination.
