NORWICH: Hummingbird Hawk Moth

15th August 2011


Sitting indoors isn't usually a very productive place to watch nature, but Cathy made the most of it this evening by spotting a Hummingbird Hawk Moth in the back garden. We ran outside and were treated to close views of this delightful moth feeding on honeysuckle flowers. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera on me (my only picture of a hummer was ironically one settled on a leaf rather than the hovering they are famous for) but fingers crossed it will return...
