Hummingbird Hawkmoth

Busy relaying paving in the garden yesterday when a Hummingbird Hawkmoth came past my ear and started inspecting the flowers.  Despite banging on the window to attract Tony's attention while keeping my eye on the moth, we did not manage a photo.  The Pieris that was covered in bees of all shapes and sizes was of no interest, bell shaped flowers no good to a Hb.Hm obviously.
Just to make it clear, Tony was not letting me do all the hard work!  ;-)


  1. What a great sighting! I've read of a few seen in Carmarthenshire this week too.

  2. Had a Hummingbird Moth in my kitchen today in Tregaron. Only realised what it was as it flew out the window!
