This afternoon I visited Jaap and Elisabeth. When I arrived, Elisabeth asked me if I had seen a moth on a tree next to the front path. I descended the steps from the deck to take a look and saw a magnificent hawk moth with outspread wings. I dashed home to get my camera and took many photos. PS Peter Hendry duly identified the moth, which was a male. The wingspan is cited as 12 cm on a number of websites, but I am convinced that it was substantially more.
