Title Exposure date Category
Shot at 2310 meters above sea level on the shores of the "Long Lake", Pirin Mountain. The main subject is a hummingbird hawk moth (Macroglossum stellatarum). These guys were very cooperative, letting me come close enough to capture their feeding habits. Though shot with a high-end compact digital camera, this image has been very successful for me. In late 2007 it was selected to participate in an exhibition called "Capture the Moment".
