The fastest flying insect in the world is known to be the dragonfly. The dragonfly flies at a speed of about 56 kilometres per hour and is followed closely by the hawk moth which flies at 53 kilometres per hour.

They have strong prolegs on 3, 4, 5, and 6 segments. Their anal prolegs are strong as well. The Caterpillars are often brightly coloured, with diagonal stripes and eyespots. They pupate in the soil or within plants litter near their the foodplants.
Hawk Moth adults are large size moths. They have the strong and aerodynamic-shaped body. Their forewings are narrow and long with smaller hind wings. They are very good flyer. They fly very fast and long distance. They even fly backward. They can hover in flight to sip nectar from flowers using their long tongue. When rest, they hold their wings on body like a tent.
