A hawk moth in mid wing stroke unrolls its proboscis to feed from a Nicotiana flower. These agile moths hover in midair and track flower movements at up to 10 times a second even in light levels as dim a starlight. To stay aloft, they capture vortices of air on their wings. (Credit: Megan Matthews)
