    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
