I thought it was an aircraft when I saw the thumbnail. Interesting little critter and No. 1 gets the vote.

No 1 is an unusual view, reminds me a lot of some Stealth aircraft
V2 and 3 show the pretty wings very well

Although I like butterflies, I don't like moths! Think it stems from when I was young, when big ones got into the house would flutter about around my face! Sad However, these are three fine captures, Carol, this is definitely the best way to view them! Wink

Three excellent captures, but v1 wins it by a head-onGrin We've had a few of similar looking moths in the past in our house. They maybe 'Engrailed moths' (Ectropis crepuscularia poss.)
