Found this little gem in the garden this morning, resting up on the Black-eyed Susan.
A Plume Moth - Amblyptilia punctidactyla
Whoops...got my ID wrong, it is Amblyptilia acanthadactyla
Fascinating markings on the moth.
Nature is wonderful
Congratulations, Sheps: what a cracking photograph!! Brilliant colours & definition too.
Thanks everyone...pleased you like it
Fantastic pic - as always Sheps
Thanks very much, Fairy
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 photos
I meant to say that too Sheps - the shape is stunning.
Would we get those up here nut, or are they only 'southern' inhabitants?
Dunno Fairy. Not sure that particular one is common at all.
