Moths on the Cherry Tree

I have just noticed the first Cherry Fruit Moths (Argyresthia pruniella) of the year flitting around the vicinity of my front garden cherry tree. They are a little bit too active to photograph in the lunchtime sunshine so this roosting Poplar Hawkmoth was chosen as an alternative subject.
The Poplar Hawkmoth is a regular visitor to light-traps at this time of year and often feature on the Yorkshire Butterfly Conservation's "Recent Sightings" page.
