Found this little gem in the garden this morning, resting up on the Black-eyed Susan.

    Fantastic pic - as always Sheps  image

    And somewhere on the hill
    Inside the past we hear the bells
    Catching only parts of thoughts
    And fragments of ourselves
    Till we begin
    Again

    Known as T moths here from the shape when parked. Lovely things, great to see the markings in such detail Sheps, not likely from one of my photosimage

    I meant to say that too Sheps - the shape is stunning. 

    Would we get those up here nut, or are they only 'southern' inhabitants? image

    Dunno Fairy. Not sure that particular one is common at all.
