More commonly known as the yellow shell moth, frequently seen in the UK and Europe, but this was my first sighting of one, lurking in the shrubbery in my garden.

It had to be a very big butterfly to carry that big name Carol Smile Excellent photos. I like the streamlined fighter plane look of V2 Smile
