So small Jacque not really noticed such a tiny moth out during the day see a lot of those Cinnabar moths and caterpillars as we get quite a bit of ragwort which they love.

Aye Dawn the flower no bigger than a daisy so really very small.If you get the chance do look at Flowercrazys Hickory horned devil caterpillar its a monster !

Spooky as she lives near a town called Hickory thought they were breeding there but gets its name from feeding on hickory leaves.

Here is an interesting website for you, Bonkers - check out http://piccies.flybywire.org.uk/ButterfliesMoths/BySpecies-BritishMoths.html
I think it looks most like a Nettle Tap - see what you think!

It is a Nettle Tap Moth ! Thanks to Grammazoo for I D ! Makes sense as our huge clump of stinging nettles are not far away,and that is apparently the host plant !

Thanks all........
