Spurge Hawk Moth

Good evening!!

I have just discovered 3 Spurge Hawk Moths on a plant that I gathered last year whilst on walks with my dog.

Could anyone tell me if they are useful in the garden (veggie or flower) - they are so beautiful, so if they aren't I will release them back along the path where I gathered the plant (which is prolific).  I believe the plant is called Spurge.

Any suggestions gratefully accepted.


PS  I will try and post a photo but that could take time as my iPad is refusing now to transmit the photos to my MacBook.  I will photo tomorrow with my phone and try to upload.

A good hoeing is worth two waterings.
