A Hummer...

My luck seems to be in the ascendancy as I`ve just  (4.45pm, 12/9) opened the kitchen door to place some peelings etc in a container for the compost heap and there was a hummingbird hawk-moth, feeding on the `second-flush` flowers of a Daphne odorata that grows by my back door.
My view was brief, as I was not expecting to see it so close and my sudden movements scared it off.


  1. Barry was right about buses, then!

  2. Lucky you Ian, after seeing them fairly consistently in previous years I haven't seen one this year yet!
