Pete's Walks - Elephant Hawkmoth

Photo taken on 29/05/11 at Kensworth, Beds.

Surprisingly, this absolutely stunning moth is common throughout most of the UK, though less so in the north.  It flies between May and early August. It was one of the moths that I was really looking forward to seeing when I got my moth trap!
