And one not so huge moth = ^ _ ^ =

Last June I posted on this forum a picture or two of a Catterpillar that my friend and I almost trod on while on the Pavement or sidewalk, I could see by the colour of this chap that he was readyand looking for a place to pupate so I took him with me and decided to rear him through his last stage until our friend emerged as a moth.
This is something I have done a lot in the past as a kid, Rearing Copper Underwings, Angle Shades, Grey Dagger and Many a Lime Hawk moth.

this is a study of a not quite so huge a spectacular moth, but by UK standards its a good one

LIME HAWK MOTH



Front three quarter view after emerging at Rex's, photoshoot at Barbara's



Rear view as passing or taking off from Biggin Hill

And finaly out in the garden resting on a standard weeping Crack Willow.
