Butterfly in my garden

Last week at around 6pm, I saw a small skipper darting around my garden and eventually landed on a leaf.  Turned out it is a Palm Bob (Suastes gramius) looking for a place to roost.  It stayed on the leaf the over night and left early in the morning.

Today when I returned home at 6pm, I found a hawk moth on the stairs !  It is a Macroglossum sitiene.  What a pleasant surprise to be greeted by a hawk moth.  This is a rather common hawk moth around my area as its larva host plant Paederia foetida, can be found growing on the fence of my condo.
