Does anyone know what this is?

I don't know if its the drastic change in weather here over the last couple of years, but I'm starting to notice some really weird bugs and winged beasties like this one.
I've absolutely no clue what it is, maybe somebody else does but I just thought it was freaky enough looking to deserve a mention. It's about two inches long and about three inches wide.
And yes, I'm still imperial, so shoot me.


  1. It's some kind of moth. Looks kind of like a Poplar Hawk Moth.

  2. Annie, you're right it is. Apparently the UK's most common hawk moth and the first time I've ever set eyes on one. Still freaked me out though, that's one big moth.


Your comments make me smile. I love that you stopped by.
