Hummingbird Hawk-moth

Macroglossum stellatarum, known as the Hummingbird Hawk-moth, is a species of Sphingidae. Its long proboscis and its hovering behaviour, accompanied by an audible humming noise, make it look remarkably like a hummingbird while feeding on flowers. Chuffed to get one in the garden… on the new flowers I bought yesterday! Even more chuffed to actually get a decent photo of it.
