[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A female (I think) Eyed Hawk Moth. Probably a satisfactory 'library shot' but for me much more. I photographed the catapiller last autumn in my garden once it had made a good effort at comsuming most of the leaves on one of the branches of my apple tree, this after a Lepoard Moth catapiller had made a major assult on the trunk over the last cople of years! The tree still survives and tonight I found the Adult Eyed Hawk on the trunk. Hopefully it will breed again this year. A truly majestic insect.
