not to sound rude, but why is it so good? Is it rare, or are you a moth watcher and this is a rare moth?

I was speaking to the op. Is it because of those colours [nice btw], or by the fact you know its name, that its a rare species?

dont be cheeky - i just like the moth - it's mainly only seen in the channel islands and south devon - i'm in east devon
there is a colony in Dorset and also some in London
they are only seen july august and september time

I think they are pretty awesome looking - better than your average moth - and this section is for posting pics so i posted my non fish piccy for peeeps to see - well hubbys piccys
