I saw this lovely fella tonight on my nightly check of the garden having a little drink from our Joe Pye Weed. It was so spectacular I got a bit obsessed trying to work out what it was. It had the most gorgeous ochre colouring under it's wings, and when it opened it's wings out fully it looked more like a butterfly.
Eventually I think I found it. It looks like a Jersey Tiger Moth. It's a 'scarce' moth apparently - it only lives in the South West and weirdly here in London too.
I put a lot of effort trying to grow plants that insects like, and I love it when it pays off!
