Coming or going?

Found this munching my viburnum and wasn't sure which way he was going until I saw the jaws working :)

clever photo Gee, what did you do with it,

I carried it very carefully over to the green by the village pond, Yorkshire, and put it into a clump of bushes so it could choose which one to eat :)

That's a good shot....you were good to take him further afield....I hope he doesn't like long treks or he may end up back at yours...lol

I think he may be a privet hawkmoth although my book says they feed on privet or lilac and I have neither in my garden!

The privet hawkmoth is common in Europe but absent in Scotland and Ireland.
Migrates north every year. Prefers open woodland shrubby hillsides parks and gardens and can be seen at night flying around the flowers.When fully grown the caterpillar turns brown along its back and sometimes wanders a long way from its food plant before burrowing underground to pupate. Gerry had one of these and kept it until it hatched into a moth.
