First time I went from Royan to the UK, 71, was at this time, end of Feb, the weather was surprisingly good, if a bit chilly :wink:

As you can see the sailing schools were out in force.

I had met a French couple from Toulouse in Majorca, we went on with the boats, to Corsica and Sardinia in company they invited me to their place, He worked for Airbus, She was an AIDS researcher, they picked me up near Beziers on the Midi, had a great time, visit to Airbus, Albi, Pau, Dune de Pilar, Pyrénées, wonderful couple, (all ‘out of season’ Simon). Then continued through the Midi, stopping at Toulouse to stay with them again and on to Scotland and Home after a great cruise in the Med via Gib outward bound!

I have wasted hours trying to get a good photograph of them but have never succeeded. A couple of weeks ago I saw a video that someone had taken of a hummingbird hawk moth and thought, why didn’t I think of that?

Blimey He’s early Ann, we get loads of them on the lavender, here in SE 56, but a few months on yet :slightly_smiling_face:

In the summertime my garden is full of these and the Broad bordered bee hawkmoth, all after my Buddleias :slight_smile:
Love the birds and butterflies we are lucky to get here. I remember one evening a visit from a Giant Peacock Moth, now that was spectacular !
