A strange looking bug Tony. I've never seen one of these. Or maybe I thought it was a stick. Well spotted and a good close-up......Sandy

A gorgeous Many-plumed Moth (its wings are divided into slender 'feathers', which it keeps tightly furled when at rest). I like the plain, dark background its decided to perch on.

Its one of the plume moths, no idea as to what you call them over there Smile

Their wings fold into the shape seen.... Very beautiful insects when they unfold, when they look somewhat reminiscent of Da Vinci's famous flying machine design.....
