LIME HAWK MOTH


This moth only flies on warm nights between May and July, but can be found resting on walls, tree trunks and lime tree foliage. The adult lives for about 5 weeks. Where there’s a lime (linden) tree in Otley, I suspect there will be Lime Hawkmoths. The lime tree is the favourite food of their caterpillars.
