Fighting my way through the tomatoes into the greenhouse I noticed this, rather fine, large moth on the window
It was surrounded by fluorescent green balls which I assume are its eggs. You can see how large it is in comparison to the fly.
Does anyone know what sort of moth it is? More importantly should I remove the eggs - are they going to be pests in anyway?
Note: It turns out this is an 'eyed hawkmoth' and if threatened will show blue and pink 'eyes' from under its wings. I am now off to shout abuse at it and see if I can get a photo of the eyes!
UPDATE. Abuse didn't work so I finally gently lift the wing open with a stick so you can see the blue eye!
