I photographed this woolly hawk on ivy at the end of May 2022. Is it possible to determine the species? Unfortunately I do not have a size reference

Thank you and greetings Volker

Possibly a Villa hottentotta. Looks strikingly similar to this iNat image: https://www.inatu.../137320405

Hi guplox,
