Hummingbird Hawk-moth

This spectacular insect is an annual visitor to the garden but only on a few days usually in late summer or early autumn. As on this occasion, they are normally only around for a few minutes. There were two here together this afternoon, the first time we have seen more than one at a time.

Fabulous pictures. They put mine to shame.
