Gynandromorph Poplar Hawk Moth

A Gynandromorph Poplar Hawk (Laothoe populi) moth. It's probably one of the rarest and most unusual insects that I will ever photograph. The left side is female, the right side male. The colour difference of each side is quite noticable the male side slightly greyer and more defined. The antennae are also different, the male side being thicker the the one on the female side. Taken Shrewsbury, Shropshire May 2024.
