Hummingbird Hawk-moth | Farcet Fen | 10 August 2006

I was returning from the car when I noticed something whizz over my shoulder. I looked round to find a Hummingbird Hawk-moth hovering around the house wall. It was cool, leaden grey sky and threatening rain so I knew it was looking for a safe spot to roost up. It worked its way along the underside of the first floor window ledges before settling on a spot c.15ft above me. I took a couple of snaps despite the bad angle and went for teh ladder. Unfortunately, when I returned it had obviously decided that that wasn't the right spot afterall and had moved on. Oh hum!
