Canary-shouldered Thorn moth, Ennomos alniaria.
This is a real prize for me, a first in our garden. A Canary shouldered Thorn - Ennomos alniaria. It was on our doorstep this morning, perfect for photography. It was cold and let me move it safely after I'd finished. I had to be quick, it started to vibrate its wings when I disturbed it. I had a vision of our cat Ruskin grabbing it.
