Artist's Description

it’s stopped raining (we are having a drought, so as soon as they announced the drought, hose pipe ban, etc, it started raining & has hardly stopped) but today it did,so the patio is dry and out came the moth trap. This handsome beastie is one of 2 Elephant Hawk Moths which came to visit me. One went into the plants, the other has hidden away in the shed with a Brimstone and a Swallowtail.
Hawk Moths are very friendly and will happily sit on your hand for a photo shoot – SuperModels one and all. In this shot, it’s on the ground
Unlike some of the Hawk Moths, the Elephants can feed as adults, the proboscis is coiled up under the “nose”

“Butterflies adorn the world and delight the eye”
John Ray (17th century naturalist)

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

“Of one Essence is the human race,
thus has Creation put the base;
One Limb impacted is sufficient
For all Others to feel the Mace ”
—Saadi (1184–1283)
