Caption: This day-flying moth is a strong and persistent flier. Starting each year from North Africa it migrates northward and as far as Great Britain. Here in Europe we can often observe the hummingbird hawk moths in our gardens and admire its artistic flying skills when it rapidly darts from flower to flower.
