Hummingbird Hawkmoth Snoozing

By petebfrance
Hummingbird Hawkmoth Snoozing in the September sun amongst Hawthorn berries.
Not being an expert, I'm assuming that it is a Hummingbird Hawkmoth as I saw one go there and followed a few minutes later. Makes a nice, restful contrast with the previous 2 photos.

Thank-you for looking at and voting for the previous effort.

Good find, you don't very often see them having a rest like this....
