Probably the UK's most common immigrant moth. Here's a Silver Y - Autographa gamma. Each forewing has a conspicuous unbroken metallic silver Y-marking. Can occur throughout the UK and breeds here (although the early stages cannot survive the winter), with numbers fluctuating from year to year. Flies by day and night, with the fast flying adults are frequently observed nectaring at flowers by day and just before dusk.
No trickery with PS/PSP with this one as opposed to yesterday's upload, this image is straight out the camera, just how I like them!
Thanks to everyone for their kind comments on yesterday's Small Copper Butterfly, bit busy today so will be very much in and out but will try and see what everyone's been up to as per usual.
