A more Prolonged Stay!

On Saturday 4th June, the Hummingbird Hawk Moth spent a more prolonged time feeding from the nectar of the Red Valerian flowers.
It first arrived at 5.10pm and didn't depart until 5.25pm and I was able to finally obtain some shots of the moth, having to change the setting on my Canon 450 camera to the TV "Shutter speed" mode and ramp up the setting to get some none- blurred shots of the moth but at the same time achieving a little blurr on the wings to achieve the impression of rapid flight in the photo. I will load the pics later.
Again the young 6 Blue Tits were around the garden, they had been fed by their parents but now appear more independent feeding off the peanut holders themselves and looking for food themselves around the garden. The young Great Tits were about too.
On Sunday 5th June, early morning, a Hairy Hawker Dragonfly seen briefly around the wildlife pond area too.
