Convolvulus Hawk Moth

John Swann trapped and photographed this Convolvulus Hawk Moth today, when we wonder at bird migration this moth has made its way up from North Africa, amazing!!!


  1. Hello all,

    Hawk Moths have stout bullet-shaped bodies with long, narrow forewings and shorter hindwings. Wingspans range from 5 to 20 cm. Many species pollinate flowers such as orchids and petunias while sucking nectar. The proboscis of some species measures up to 32.5 cm. Some hawk moths migrate. Thanks for sharing it.....
