A Hummingbird moth in my garden. They are one of favorite bugs, looking rather like a flying shrimp to me. But I LOVE the garden in the background. The bug is nice and sharp and all, but the bokeh makes the image for me.

I almost like the background more than the subject itself. Beautiful pastel colours.

Nice image. Hard to catch those in flight, they move along so fast. Great background too.
