Hummingbird Hawk Moth

We quite often see the caterpillars of moths and butterflies, but it is always a treat when you get to see them in their beautiful adult form.

This is a hummingbird hawk moth I spotted whilst out walking the dog. It was flitting between the flowers in a row of  jasmine bushes.

Above are some screenshots from the video but it’s a bit  blurry as it was moving so quickly. You can see a short video which shows it a bit better below
