We found this pupa in our garden and we have observed it over a few weeks. Yesterday it emerged into this beautiful moth. We think it could be a death head hawk moth, but we arnt too sure. Any ideas?
What a wonderful thing to observe. And a fabulous photograph of the pupa.
This looks like a Privet Hawk-moth with its pink and black abdominal markings.
It should become clear once it has expanded its wings.
