Moth

Isn't this beautiful


It landed on my kitchen window in July and luckily stayed there long enough for me to get the camera out.
I think it is a White Satin Moth.

  4. 'Countryside Tales' and you are absolutely correct, but 'Jane and Chris' are the real experts as they know it's a male moth.
    Now this reminds me of a joke (which will probably get me banned?)
    .
    I was in the pub the other night with a couple of my mates and I happened to mention that I liked the smell of new mown hay. Norman said he liked the smell of moth-balls. "So do I" said Gerald, "but I have real trouble in getting their legs apart!"
    .
    I thought long and hard before posting this - and finally decided that a good laugh never hurt anybody. :-)
