Hummingbird Hawkmoth

This afternoon in a Sunniside garden we watched a Hummingbird Hawkmoth working its way around the garden flowers probing for nectar.
Its only the second I have ever seen. This first being in an Algerian garden, thirty-five years ago.
I understand that while some are resident near the south coast, most make their way here from the continent.

I was a bit surprised myself when it came back to me
