Grey Dagger Moth caterpillar in Suffolk, England, August 1969
Its catterpilar fell on my knee while I was seated under a large Birch tree 23 August 2008
As the weather was so dull, I've tried it on several backgrounds to get a reasonable picture...
As I didn't know yet what's usually on its menu I tested if it would like nettle, but nope, no interest, lol.
I thought the wisest would be to put it back on the tree it fell from..
Taken on 26th July 2008, Lincoln UK. Wingspan 30-40mm, it flies from June to August. Very similar to the Dark Dagger, which seems to be less grey and with slightly different markings.
