The hummingbird moths (White-lined Sphinx MothHyles lineata) have returned to greet the lilacs . . . this little bugger was resting on the door frame next to the doorknob . . . had to be careful opening and closing the door.

I had planned to use the iPod Touch 5G but changed my mind and shot with the Nikon Coolpix using the 12mp mode . . . looking for the detail . . . I can always dump the images into one of the darkroom apps if I feel the need for some excitement . . . I did mess with the brightness and contrast (PhotoForge 2) . . .

Update

I shot a few more pics of the moths this afternoon (Coolpix) . . . cropped, adjusted contrast & brightness then increased saturation cos the birds were shot against the sky . . .
