Pink Elephants......Hic!

By Ade_Osman    
Keep finding these wonderful creatures in the garden again this year and I haven't had a drop of alcohol Wink

The wonderful and superbly photogenic Elephant Hawk Moths are back, I don't know what it is about my garden that draws them in, but I found 7 yesterday! This perfect specimen was hiding in amongst the Lavender, but with a little persuasion I coaxed him up to the top of the plant where I could get a decent shot with no background clutter.

Thanks to Tonyng's UA on yesterdays image of a Silver Y......
