I Froze Its Wings! Well, Almost

I have a friend who is good at capturing birds, butterflies, and hummingbird moths.  Most of my shots have yielded blurry to non-existent wings.  But today!  I did it!  I froze the wings of a hummingbird moth, and I was excited to see a glint of colorful light reflected on its wings.  I used my Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens with the settings set at 100 ISO and the shutter speed at 1/5000 sec.  (❉◠‿◠)

Hummingbird moths are kind of like platypuses, because they look like they were made up of parts from other creatures . . . bumblebee, hummingbird, butterfly, and moth.  I love our Creator’s imagination!
