Found this guy walking around garden. Huge with what looks like moth wings. Scales have a velvet like look. 6 legs with black and yellow abdomen.
Looked everywhere on net and can’t find it.
This Death’s Head Hawkmoth has just eclosed, meaning it has emerged from its pupal stage, and its wings have still not expanded and hardened, a process that will enable it to fly.
