I presume these are hawk moths but are they mating or just sleeping. I found them this morning on the gate post.
Yes, these are Lime Hawkmoths, Mimas tiliae, and its very much 'je t'aime'.
The great thing a out their crazy camouflage is that they stick out like a sore thumb when they are not in the undergrowth giving us the opportunity to see these beautiful moths.
Thank you for the info, so we are going to have lots baby Lime Hawk moths around the garden.
