Visitors

Bag End has dozens of visitors each day looking for food and once we get some ponds built I hope the number will rise. Today we had a couple of particularly attractive ones.



First this Poplar Hawk-moth. I found him on the windbreak netting in full sun and looking rather vulnerable. Carried him into the garden and relocated him in the shade on a laurel leaf. He was still there 8 hours later so can't have been too bothered about being disturbed.



This lovely looking Red is a probably youngster (no ear tufts).
