Last week I was very excited about finding a Small Elephant Hawk Moth at Killinallan. Now I'm pretty sure this is an Elephant Hawk Moth (its larger, less colourful relative). It was attracted to the Trust's moth trap which I put out last night. This is not so rare as its smaller cousin, but I was still very excited and pleased to see it fly like the wind when I released it after photographing it. Becky
Photographs, or even short video clips, are particularly welcome.
We look forward to hearing from you
