I was lucky enough to capture this photo of a six-spot burnet day-flying moth this afternoon.

I have never seen one of those. Are they native to your area?

Never heard of those before, let alone seen one!!

Thus proving the adage that you learn something new every day!

How odd that grey looks. I like the red spots too :)

The moth is a living work of art in the midst of lush golden flowers.
surreal :D

My Dear Wife, Velda J, When I passed my old camera on to you I did not expect such competition quite so fast! Well Done, Indeed. I heartily endorse previous comments. :clap: :clap:

Thanks for all the encouragement. Actually, I'd never come across one of these before and thought I'd got something really unusual. The Guide Book of British Wildlife, however, tells me that they are very common throughout Gt.Britain and Ireland, which just goes to show that I must have been going around with my eyes shut. I'll be watching out for them from now on, you can be sure.

Velda, beautiful moth, great shot. I hear you re: keeping your eyes open. I'm finding things on my own little acre that I hadn't noticed before, since I got my new 995. :D
