Moth of the Year?

Yesterday morning there were two of these gorgeous brutes in the trap Says that they are common in the books but it's taken me over 40 years to see one!
Privet Hawkmoth
Left my hand in this shot to show how huge it is.
What a Moth! :-)

I remember having to rescue one from a pub I was in once, you wouldn't want one landing on your neck whilst your driving that's for sure.
