An excellent set of images, John, I think V.2 is my favourite for the composition, all well captured. No hope of any butterflies here today, we have a force 9 gale blowing right now Sad Carol

Lovely series, they are beautiful and just what we need now. Do you know the name of the butterfly?
BTW I have found a reference to your hawk moth among the south african ones. First thought it was the SA humming bird one but the body looks not the same
Macroglossum trochilus
then I though you might look at those
http://www.biodiversityexplorer.org/lepidoptera/sphingidae/temnora.htm
Temnora pylades or pylas?
