Last Instar of the Humming-bid Hawk Moth.
This is a very migrant butterfly, which flies all year in southern Europe, but also in the coastal regions of middle-western Europe. It even migrates to Iceland and is known to migrate up to 3000 Kilometers in just about 2 weeks.
Its hard to define the Imago's flight-period for Central Europe.
