Who Said Elephants Can’t Fly?


Elephant Hawk-moth (Deilephila elpenor) РThis stunning  moth was attracted to my shed light last night. These are the super jets of the moth world for they fly at incredible speed. Yet in the daytime they are as gentle as kittens, and will let you handle them, provided you are gentle with them.
