Our Hummingbird Hawkmoth is different to this one Lori. Well done for the photo capture. We've seen more large moths this year.

Thanks Kate and Linda: I had to use the fastest shutter I had to get the image of the wings... when they are flying they're just a blurr. last evening it was getting very cool and I inadvertantly let a moth in the door when coming from the deck... I thought it was a regular moth but soon realized it was probably the same one I had photographed... looking for a warm spot overnight... He disappeared in my kitchen and I went to bed wondering where he was... This morning he's on the door...waiting to be let out! He's safely back in the flowers again. It was 8 degrees C. last night.
