Moth or What?
Hi
Saw this today in Co Kildare, Ireland. Found your site while trying to identify. Can you save me the bother of further searches? Nearest description I can find is for a Hook-tip Moth.
Best Regards
Ray Stewart

Hi Ray,
Though we did not recognize your species, we quickly located the Elephant Hawk-moth, Deilephila elpenor, with a google search. Your moth is quite beautiful. Here is a site with more photos.
