Astonishing little miracles of chemistry. Almost every secret of the living world embodied in a tiny creature that just wants to fly into the light. Marvellous, but rather daft, just like us.

THanks Cherie it may not be as bright as a butterfly but it is beautiful in its own way

That's a moth? Looks more like a floor-sweeper thingie!!

How very odd!
I just found a German moth from my friend's "My Forest Garden" blog, that looks very similar indeed to your brocade mothie:

Haha Gledwood, Iddly enough the toadflax brocade moth is rare here but common across a swathe of the world, including Germany, I think
