Nice picture and lucky to capture that one. It is actually a clear wing moth. Sometimes mistaken for a hummingbird as well. One cool insect! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the Identification! I think I took about 50 pictures of this as my cousin was curious what it was, but never took the time to identify. That same campsite, I even got a picture of some type of ant killing and carrying off a big caterpillar.

Nice! I dig the theme of this month's contest. It's amazing what can be observed if we take the time to sit, watch and listen.

This was on Burt Lake in Quetico in 2011. I liked the way the light lit up this small section of granite.
