I hope that's the right name for this animal.
They're really really fast! I'm glad I got a decent shot of them:



Have to take some more pictures with higher ISO or even flash to freeze the wings. maybe it works.

Hi, I took this photo in our garden here in Germany.
They're here every summer and you can see them quite regularly every day in the afternoon and early evening.

I think they're all over the world! I took a photo of one a couple weeks ago here in southern IL, in the midwest USA. They're cool animals, they look a lot like a bee when you see one that's bright yellow.

Hehe the first time I saw one of these moths I thought it was a kolibri (Hummingbird?)

I have never seen them in Denmark, it's probably too cold.
