Hummingbird Hawk-Moth

By maj
The Hummingbird Hawk-Moth
The moth is so named due to its rapid, hovering flight, which is very reminiscent of a humming bird. (an absolute nightmare to try and photo, it moves so fast the shot is not as sharp as I would have liked but I tried my best)
The moth is normally a rare sight in Northern Ireland but warm summers have made them more common.

Thanks for all comments on last upload
