Low-pitched buzz of a hawkmoth (Hyles livornica) hovering, and the clicks it makes as his wings hit plant branches. Crickets in background. Sennheiser ME66 > Shure FP24 > iRiver (rockbox). Believe me when I say this sample was difficult to get / El zumbido de un Hyles livornica mientras vuela, y los clicks que hacen las alas al chocar con ramitas. Se escuchan grillos al fondo. Creo que es la cosa más difícil que he grabado en mi vida.

    Great sound from the great uploader. Good for sound design stock and possesses rhythmic qualities. I can imagine some monstrous atmosphere coming from this. I agree it would be nice if the background was less however, I'm sure the locusts?? could be notched out without too much damage.

    I love the buzzing, but it would be better to have the moth buzzing isolated from the background ambiance, if possible.
