Isabel adds more interest to your magical macro of a rare ' Large Red-Belted Clear wing moth '. This is so outstandingly well taken. Out of awards but you sure deserve them . TG

Wow! What a find!!! I'm afraid I'm going to disagree with Isabel (sorry!) - this is a Fiery Clearwing (Pyropteron chrysidiformis)................extremely rare and only found in sunny coastal areas (around the very Southeast of England). The caterpillar lives in the roots of docks, especially curled dock and sorrel. It is now considered 'endangered'. I feel quite envious! Smile Brilliantly caught.
