Privet Hawk Moth

Two Pictures of a Privet Hawk Moth which I trapped, I took a chance on not getting a picture and moved it by hand, it was quite happy to stand on my finger while I transferred it to my Arum Lily, they look very drab until they unfold their wings.
There were plenty of other moths of all shapes and sizes but until my ordered book arrives I shall not be trying to identify the individuals although I have taken a few other record shots.
