Hi All,

Spotted this little creature among the bees on the lavender. Never see anything like it before. I first thought it was a humming bird. It was hovering around the plant with serious aerial ability. Would describe it as furry with butterfly wings.

Spot on Hemo. Just looked them up. Never seen or heard about them before. What an amazing creature.

A visitor to the shores of UK & Eire during early summer.
Though successful at mating, winter survival is low I believe. Milder winters will see them hopefully increase.

Think this is the baby version of your moth found on the lawn last week.
