A 'Poplar' Hobby

I haven't done very much birding lately, but I have been able to run my moth trap in the garden once or twice a week for the last couple of months.

One species I've been hoping to capture is the poplar hawk-moth. Its not rare, but as far as I'm concerned is very attractive looking. Well, last night this fine specimen dropped into my box.

I'll start to add some more photos of insects etc, to the new gallery that I've placed at the foot of the right-hand navigation on this blog.
