Hummingbird Hawk-moth (Macroglossum stellatarum)(garden)

I have just seen a moth which I haven’t seen in the garden since 2013 , its raining so I didn’t take my camera when I went the studio to water some plants and it was checking out the Honeysuckle … these are the photos I took back in 2013 … I’m so glad they are back.

Macroglossum stellatarum, known as the Hummingbird Hawk-moth or sometimes the Hummingmoth, is a species ofSphingidae . Its long probosis and its hovering behaviour, accompanied by an audible humming noise, make it look remarkably like a hummingbird while feeding on flowers
