    • I am glad you liked it! The developed moth is startling to look at too – black with bright red spots and stripes its a native over here. I have read with some sceptisism on Wikipedia thats its been introduced into North America to control Ragwort.

    • I have just read on the brilliant Buglife website, that its numbers are in decline as a lot of Ragwort is now removed from the countryside.The wild field behind me has lots of Ragwort this year, but does not have any livestock, so we just enjoy the flashes of yellow. I am hoping to see some adult moths.

    • Hi Charlie, thanks so much, apologies for the delay in replying, I do not why but your comment was put in my spam folder, glad you liked the photo. 🙂
