HUMMINGBIRD HAWK - MOTH (12)
|HUMMINGBIRD HAWK - MOTH (FROM MY ARCHIVE)|
IN THE WORKSHOP I POST ANOTHER IMAGE WITH THE SAME SPECIE OF MOTH.....
The hummingbird hawk-moth is distributed throughout the northern Old World from Portugal to Japan, but is resident only in warmer climates (southern Europe, North Africa, and points east). It is a strong flier, dispersing widely and can be found virtually anywhere in the hemisphere in the summer. However it rarely survives the winter in northern latitudes (e.g. north of the Alps in Europe, north of the Caucasus in Russia). They have been spotted in Newfoundland, Canada and Malaysia as well as southeast Texas, Southern California, and Northern Utah. There have also been reported sightings during the winter in Ireland.
