I had this creature in my gardens for most of July, August and September last year. It loved my moonflowers and my 4o'clocks. I thought I spotted one this year. I saw it every night for about a week, and now I haven't seen it for a few days.
I have an automatic RUN feeling when I see it, but I miss it when it's gone!
