You big mother

Privet Hawkmoth

A small catch of only 57 moths of 14 species overnight. I had emptied the trap and began my inspection of the outside (moths regulalry sit in the outside of the trap in the nooks and crannies, and on the surrounding wall and fence). I turned it round to be greeted by my first Privet Hawkmoth of the year. What a cracking insect this is - a monster!
