Six spot Burnet

One of our day flying moths the six spot Burnet is a most  attractive metallic blue-green moth with six carmine-red spots on its wings.

It has a rather weak fluttering flight and interestingly, if disturbed, it will fall to the ground feigning death.

It certainly brightened up an otherwise grey day.


  1. Great shot, I really like the background too a personal favourite of mine is to see or trying to get one nice tone in the background

  2. Thanks Doug , its a beaut of a moth ..... it just came together ...... as most good images do ...It just happened.
