Eyed Hawkmoth

Sometimes its easy to be jealous. This beauty was not recorded in our garden, but instead was found by our neighbour in hers. This is the Eyed Hawkmoth, a species we have never recorded in our garden so not on our species list (yet!).

Eyed Hawkmoth

It’s called the Eyed Hawkmoth due to the pattern on its hind wings resembling eyes, unfortunately we couldn’t persuade this fella to show us its colours.

Thankfully it is still a rather common species so hopefully one will visit us of its own accord at some point.
