Hummed out

Just another Hummingbird Hawk to add to Tom's. Sadly but obligingly from the photographic point of the view, this one was dead. It got into our greenhouse without anyone noticing and died of whatever it is that kills butterflies and moths in greenhouses without marking them. Heat, I guess. I've never seen one still before and it's also a garden first for me here and in Leeds (though neighbours there had them there from time to time and it seems almost common in these parts).  Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon.
