Cross Inn, Llanon

Please can somebody help me I'd this moth?
Last night I had 3 Elephant Hawkmoths. Why can't they all be so easy to identify!

  1. Hi Phil, that looks like a Flame

    1. Thank you, Peter. Indeed, it is a Flame. I've never caught one before but can now add it to my personal bank of knowledge by adding a name to my photo. Thanks again.

  2. Usually sits with wings rolled round itself so is identified by that in first instance...sort of unmistakeable jizz.

    1. Thank you, Liz. It did indeed have its wings wrapped around when I caught it but it unfolded them when I released it. It is my first Flame. I looked through Townsend and Waring for hours without success.
