Small Elephant Hawk-moth Deilephila porcellus
Perhaps not the most pristine specimen of a Small E.H I've ever seen in the garden, but still a welcome visitor all the same.
Shot is pretty much how it came out the camera with no manipulation whatsoever. In hindsight I should have shot it with a slightly smaller aperture as the wings are a trite softer than I'd have liked but my shutterspeed was as low as I really wanted to take it.....Never mind, hopefully I'll have other opportunities this year. I was just pleased to see him, as normally all I ever seem to attract are the larger and more common Elephant Hawkmoths.......
Thanks for looking in and taking the time to vote/comment on my last image......Hope were all having a good w/e despite the inclement weather....
