Privet Hawkmoth


Lately I've been inspired by John Wright's blog, which showcases his considerable talent as a naturalist, photographer and artist.

I went out into the garden to photograph butterflies when I spotted this Privet Hawkmoth hiding on the back fence, out of the wind. I knew it would sit dead still so I got my paints and some paper, and had a go at painting it.
