Part 2:  sunday.  Had a lot more fun today as the human torch with my fantastic four group.  Made my day getting another picture with the flame princess and pyro, this was a much more themed shot!  The Pet Sematary group was awesome; one of my favorite movies and an incredibly creative idea.  Also saw some great mlp princesses during the contest, but wish i could have gotten them all together!

Aww yeah, my as Church and undead-medic as Victor!

your group was awesome as well XD

Hummingbird hawk moth (Macroglossum stellatarum)

The hummingbird hawk-moth is a species in the family Sphingidae. It is distributed throughout the northern Old World from Portugal to Japan, but is resident only in warmer climates (southern Europe, North Africa, and points east).

It is a strong flier, dispersing widely and can be found virtually anywhere in the hemisphere in the summer. Its long proboscis and its hovering behaviour, accompanied by an audible humming noise, make it look remarkably like a hummingbird while feeding on flowers. It flies during the day, especially in bright sunshine, but also at dusk, dawn, and even in the rain, which is unusual for even diurnal hawkmoths.

Its visual abilities have been much studied, and it has been shown to have a relatively good ability to learn colours.
