Well caught I like its eyes on the wings even though its a pest.

They are welcome to the self seeded Sycamores if they can strip the leaves faster than I need to clear them .. then no pest to me lol

LMAO I was put here for a completly different reason, which you would proberbly not belive I will give you a few clues, the church is called Salem which I live next door to directly opposite is another church which has the bishops eyes for its windows facing my windows, I am surrounded by water I live on a cross road just out side my front door and my son inlaws last name is Mathers who objects to my believes, but perhaps your right they always say one day the dead will all rise . My mother said before she died have they put you hear to die and then shove you over the fence lol :D:D:D

We have a cemetary down the end of the road. When I was little (ish) (about 10) I was walking past the cemetary with my dad after dark and I said I would be freighted to go in there in the dark. All dad said was, 'Those people are the only ones in the world you DON'T have to be scared of!' Never forgotten that lol

He was trying to say its the living you ought to be fearing about as no dead person ever hurt any one. Best neighbours I have ever had they don't complain, I can have my music on and you dont hear a peep out of them, where as the other side complains about me feeding a cat , my tv but it was ok when her son was there screaming with his mates at football and parties going on til early hours, when I had a small child woken up that had to go to school the next day, his mrs playing music from1 to4 in the morning when they lived there and her reving her car to park comming home at 2.30 in the morning,

Your Moth is called a Vapourer (Orgia antiqua) family Lymantriidae. It is quite widespread according to my book, although I've never seen one.If you Google that name on your computer you should be able to find out more about it bonkersbon. Great photo by the way.
