Lime Hawkmoth

This beautiful Hawkmoth is a Lime Hawkmoth, Mimas tiliae, and according to the UK Moths site:  “A reasonably common species in the southern half of Britain, it was most frequent in the London area, where there are still extensive tree-lined avenues. In recent years its distribution has spread northwards and is now regularly found well into North Yorkshire and beyond.”
