Moth: Oleander Hawk Moth

Oleander hawk moth (Daphnis nerii)

Meet my garden’s newest guest. I was fascinated by this  large and beautiful creature. I found it one afternoon in the yard. I was so happy that i was able to invite new lepidopteran species in my area. It inspires me to plant more varieties of plants to attract more moths, butterflies, bees, and birds.. So glad!
