Hummingbird Hawkmoth (& 5 Common Butterflies)

The 5 common butterflies are: Cabbage White, Comma, Meadow Brown, Speckled Wood, Red Admiral.

And one very uncommon (to me) Hummingbird Hawkmoth. A first ever sighting (and therefore filming)

Must be the heat (waves) we’re having this summer thats making such exotic sounding creatures blow in to urban back gardens.

This one was humming – or hovering – over the buddleia for about one minute.
That’s all the look we got.

Thats all the look we needed.
To feel astonished, amazed.
