Hawking for Moths

I put the trap out again last night. Huge numbers of all kinds of moths were lured in, but this Elephant Hawk Moth was the prize - worth the cost of the trap on its own. I was thrilled! When I read up about it, I discovered they are fond of feeding on Honeysuckle flowers, and the one at the bottom of our garden is in prolific flower at the moment. It's amazing to think of all the wildlife in gardens that people seldom, if ever see, unless you put in extra effort.
