Thought you might like to see one of our native moths here in the UK. This was taken today. She is a Tiger Moth.
i'm not right keen on moths, but she's really pretty :)
Me either..............but this one is really neat!! Thanks for sharing!!
Thanks Floridian for once my subject was willing!
it's an Elephant Hawk Moth if I remember right.
Have you seen the eggs? look carefully.
I know other people have told me so. I must have misheard you the first time round. Someone showed me another photo they had taken of this moth. It was much more brightly coloured than this one and it was really beautiful. I expect bats eat moths dont they - shame really when they are as beautiful as this. But then I suppose you would say bats are beautiful too.
brightly coloured moths are usually not good eating. Hawkmoths are too big for British/Irish bats to eat.
I expect the wings get stuck in your throat!
