    Wow, what a fantastically beautiful hawkmoth. The image is pretty good too, Jimmy!!! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find and photograph the increasingly rare Spanish Moon Moth (Graellsia isabellae). Happy hunting!

  • I know the species you mean,Alison!Beautiful and indeed very rare,but perhaps when I´m very lucky(again)….
    Thanks for your nice comment,
