A rare visitor

Last year we only caught one glimpse of a hummingbird hawk moth Macroglossum stellatarum in our garden. This year, though I have seen one at least 5 times and each time it has been hovering around the lavender. Most of my sightings have been in the evening when the light hasn't been good for photography, but today it arrived in the morning with the sun shining, so I managed to get these photo's!!!
