Well caught, especially given the difficulty getting the pic! It's beautiful!

I read recently that the Wood Tiger Moth is quite rare. This one was (probably still is) on my shed door.

Sadly it was tucked into the corner so didn't get a good view. But it was gone this morning- Tiger tiger burning bright in the forest of the night - Oh no that was a real tigger

It's a lovely moth...well spotted and well done for scaling the dizzy heights of a chair:))) I always wobble when my feet are not firmly on the ground:))))

You will laugh bandsix - but about 9 months ago I stood on a char, fell off and broke my wrist! - still a bit painful - hence I was a bit careful/nervous on this occasion!

Insects are good at being uncooperative as to where they land.
