Small Elephant Hawk-moth Deilephila porcellus

Slightly smaller but even more brightly-coloured than its cousin the Elephant Hawk-moth (D. elpenor), it is however much rarer, but occurs widely in Britain. It prefers chalky districts and dry grassy localities, but is found in a range of habitats.

Another image for CarolG, thinking of you mate.

What a beauty, I've never had the pleasure of seeing one. Lovely white trim along the inner wing edges accentuating the shape.
