This critter has been visiting my Buddleia several times a day for the past few days. I cannot tell you how many failed photos I have taken of this moth because I have ditched most of them. This moth never stayed still!
I've been trying to capture the wings so you couldn't see see the motion, as in the photo below:
Example of more wing action than I wanted, plus a cloud covered the sun
To stop the wing action, I decreased the shutter speed so much that most of the resulting images were very dark. Yep, frustrating.
FINALLY, one photo nearly turned out the way I wanted.
