Is This What I Think It Is?

Death's Head Hawkmoth

Geordie and Toby’s Grandpa found this today while he was out.  I had never seen one before and looked it up.  It looks like a Death’s Head Hawkmoth.  I read that they sneak into honey bee hives and eat honey.  They get in because they smell like a bee.

Winnie the Pooh should have thought of that.

Update:  A friend showed me that this is actually an Imperial Moth.  I guess Winnie couldn’t have learned anything useful from this guy after all.
