Humungous Poplar Hawk Moth on doorway at the Emporium
Eddie the window-cleaner, who is currently repainting the front of the Emporium, pointed this out to me as I was passing. This moth was easily 6cm wide - slightly creepily large. I've never seen one of these in Cromarty before, but Viv reckons it's an Elephant Hawk Moth. Any moth experts out there? Can you confirm? Eddie moved it to the back garden at the Emporium.
[Updated: Confirmed as Poplar Hawk Moth.]
