Our most common Hawk-moth, but that doesn't make them any easier to find. Distributed commonly throughout most of Britain, the adults are on the wing from May to July, the larvae feed on poplar (Populus), aspen (P. tremula) and sallow (Salix).

Back to my moths and what I know best I'm afraid rather than tweaking about in Photoshop trying to make crap images into something that I can upload. Tongue

Hedgehog Update
Well "Hodgepodge" our hardy hedgehog who should be in hibernation by now is still visiting the garden and made several visits last night, I scooped him up the other night just to check he was healthy and make sure there was nothing obvious as to why he hasn't hibernated as yet and he's fine as far as I can tell, in fact he's putting weight on quite fast, so I don't think it will be long before he finally goes down. Plenty of visits in the night by the our wild Fox who came in the garden 4 times in the night, managing to grab the fresh chicken before the local neighbourhood cats did. As always the place to visit if you want to see what goes on in our garden in the night is Ade's Hedgehog & Wildlife Cams at the moment as I speak the bird tables and feeders are being mobbed by the local Starling population.

Thanks for all your recent comments on my work, hope everyone has a great Sunday.......Ade

Looks like the moth version of a stealth bomber, Ade..perhaps this is where they got the idea from?

Sounds like your garden is the in-place to be seen at present..anyone who is anything in the world of Nature frequents Ade's PlaceGrin
