They look too cute to bite! I love the antennae :) I was going to ask, but I looked it up instead. If any one else is curious... it's a day-flying moth. Here a link to more info:

Agree...are you sure this was the culprit Eileen!?

Thanks all for your nice comments and thank you Tastey for the link. I doubt that it was this that bit you Irish as I don't think the have mouth parts in the traditional sense and they don't have a sting.

Glad to read that, Toto. Looks too beautiful to be nasty.

Thanks Wagger. I don't think itt's nasty at all. I think that Irish is giving us a bit of the Blarney.

I saw one of these in the garden - but no chance of a photo, it was far and away before I blinked! lol.

Thanks Newfie. I am very lucky to work where I do as there are so many insects and I spend every lunchtime walking around trying to find them.

Thanks Milky. Apparently their favourite food plant is the Birdsfoot Trefoil of which there is lots where I work.

SHE'S beautiful ! I say she because it looks like she's wearing a mink stole and beautiful black spotted cape, with a lovely black crown head piece to top off the ensemble...lol
