We had a particulary dark night a few evenings ago and there were lots of moths fluttering about, even the gecko was getting a feast. I took some pictures and got them identified by the helpful forum that I go on Iberian Nature Forum. They are not the moths that im used to that are just brown and quite dull to look at. They are as follows:- Striped Hawkmoth (Hyles livornica)
