Hummingbird Hawk-moth feeding on buddleia
Cool photograph, of the impossible to photograph hummingbird Hawk-moth! I haven't seen any this year :-(
This hummingbird hawkmoth has an amazingly long proboscis, it looks as though it's tethered to the buddleia!

The hummingbird hawk most also has it's very own They Might Be Giants song :-) http://tmbw.net/wiki/Lyrics:Bee_Of_The_Bird_Of_The_Moth
