Moth: African hummingbird hawkmoth

Unread postby Goggapot » Tue Nov 12, 2013 8:30 am

Hi all my fellow Forumites!

I'm looking for more information on the African hummingbird hawkmoth. Any information will help. We saw one in the Nylstroom (Modimolle) district.

Thanks
Proud Stiffnecks Member!

Why can't I be where my is?
