10 Sept 2015 - Death's-head Hawk-moth

Marc Botham passed the office today on his way to St Margarets for a 'National Moth Night' session. With Marc was a couple of Death's-head Hawk-moth larvae which were rescued from a crop of pototoes being dug in a back garden in Leafields, West Oxfordshire.

Huge beasts - fantastic! And looking even more enormous in my daughter's cupped hands!
