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.
