    Do hope that isn't my beautiful big Hawk Moth being swallowed there...but it does look like a Hawk Moth. The kookaburra swooped to the ground to catch the moth, then flew up onto the wire. A second kookaburra harrassed it but there was no sharing as the moth was thrown up for a better grip before being swallowed.
