A green and brown huge moth seen near my garden. First two shots are of night from the mosquito net and the next 2 shots are of the flying moth when they were flying around for nectar. Very active moths. They are moderate to large in size and are distinguished among moths for their rapid, sustained flying ability. Some hawk moths, like the hummingbird hawk moth, hover in midair while they feed on nectar from flowers and are sometimes mistaken for hummingbirds. These moths are some of the fastest flying insects, some are capable of flying at over 50 km/h (30 miles per hour).
