day one-hundred-and-eighty-eight - hawk moth

yet another species with a cool scientific family name - sphingidae.

sphin-g'day to you too hawk moth...

i have a knack for choosing the least cool (or at best, the second-coolest) member of a species to draw. this hawk moth is cool, and a lovely dusty orange colour when not coloured in with lead pencil, but i could have drawn a hummingbird hawk-moth.

that's two bird names in a non-bird species right there. very impressive work hawky.

dash! another missed opportunity.
