More Moths 9th June

Here you go - Small Elephant Hawkmoth Deilephila porcellus





and Elephant Hawkmoth Deilephila elpenor,




keep an eye out for the larvae of the latter species, here's a pic from Dave and Orcilla Hadrick taken last year -  you can hardly mistake these brutes for anything else, they're the size of a medium sized sausage! If you want to know more about standard sausage sizes check out this link:
