    Book Bugs!

    Anyone come across this moth before and know what it's called. About 5/6 inch wingspan.IMG_4340.jpg

    It looks very much like an Oleander Hawk Moth.
    Colouring looks right and the wingspan is right.

    I just googled Oleander Hawk Moth, hmm. Maybe a Yam Hawk Moth?

    Could be. The Hawk Moths are similar in size and colour.
    Difficult to tell without having it in front of you while you look at the photos on Google.
    Still, beautiful insects to have in your garden.

    The colouration looks nothing at all like an Oleander Hawk Moth. So it is far more likely to be a Yam Hawk Moth

    If you're offended by any assistance I give, it says far more about you than it does me.
