The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
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.
Oh theey are wonders but daft as they are they won't blow each other up!
It has lovely markings :-)
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:http://mein-waldgarten.blogspot.com/2010/07/besuch-am-nachmittag.html
Haha Gledwood, Iddly enough the toadflax brocade moth is rare here but common across a swathe of the world, including Germany, I think
