Whenever I see one of these Burnet Moths they are on thistles! Oh yeah and good pic!

Nice piece of close up work as these insects can be very nervous and esily disturbed
They are also very striking when in flight with their red underwing showing.

Thank you Simon, Terry, John, Frank, Lucien and whoever else it was who clicked on the shot but didn't leave a comment. I very much appreciate your kind comments. I have to admit, I was very lucky with this shot. I have tried on several occasions to capture one, but they always seem to fly off at the exact moment I take the shot!, this one however wasn't moving for anyone or anything, it was too preoccupied with the teasel, so I was able to get of a few shots, this one being the best.
