Whilst I was down by the pond, searching the trees for photographic subjects, I thought to myself "I'd love to see some Buff-tip moths", they are moths I'd never seen.
On the way home, I glanced at some nettles and there to my delight was a Buff-tip - though it did look a little odd (it was way bigger then I expected!). It wasn't until I'd settled in the nettles that I realised...............'it' was a breeding pair!!!
It would have been rude (and a waste of the stings) not to take a photo or two!!
