Spring has arrived in Vernal - Check out the Hawk Moth!

By
Real Estate Agent

Spring is finally here. I took the chance to enjoy nature and photograph the beautiful flowers here in Vernal. It was nice to get outside and relax. I did not worry about things that needed to be done and just enjoyed the beauty of nature.

Hope you are able to just relax and enjoy the view! Check out the Hawk Moth that is in two different picutres! They look like hummbirds, but they are moths.

 

On the technical end I learned more about my camera today and will use the micro lens next time to get closer to the flowers. I will also be watching for shadows, especially mine!

I even caught a Hawk Moth enjoying the flowers. They look like hummingbirds with the way their wings move so quickly. They also have the long proboscus for getting nectar from the flowers. If you look closely at the left side of the first picture on my blog you will see the hawk moth in it too.

As usual I took about a hundred shots to get a few. I also learn a few things that I would change next time to improve the shots. Pretty successful outing!

These are wonderful pictures! And the hawk moth is a great catch! Alas the tulips in the deep south have already come and gone! Thanks for sharing your photos!

Being back in Tennessee (I lived in Knoxville years ago and was raised in Memphis) will give me a lot of time to rediscover those old friends and find new ones! Now if I could just find where I packed that camera! You can probably tell from my Atlanta posts that the photos will definitely be forthcoming! My garden is well underway and I've only been here just under two weeks!

My son planted his garden here in Idaho and we are hoping the plants won't freeze. It may freeze even into june. You never know around here. They say if you don't like the weather wait a minute and it will change.

Looking forward to the pictures!

Debbie, It was a beautiful day for taking pictures, and the location had many flowers to choose from.

Great shots! I especially enjoyed the head-on close up of the yellow tulip and the "action" shot of the big moth attacking the pansies!

Thanks for stopping by. I am going to try out the micro lens on my camera next time I take pictures of flowers. I am learning a lot from others about how to use my camera.
