Hawking Hummers

There are some wonderful insects on the wing at the moment. We watched Broad bordered Bee Hawkmoths this week collecting nectar from Red Campion. They are not common although I have a feeling they may be overlooked in a few places. Hovering in front of the flowers they are our summer equivalent of hummingbirds.
