It might be a Mullein Moth.

Thought for the day courtesy of Prof Brian Cox .

"Green is the colour nature throws away !"

Plants reflect green light but use the other colours to grow !

Those science chaps can scramble ones brain !  :lol:

They do love that Verbena , i'd like to grow some here but the wind would flatten it !

Used to get the Commas in our Privet hedge back in Hants !

I'm finding lots of baby slow worms in my compost heaps at the moment. I posted a picture of more mature ones basking on this thread on 9th July, but this is 1 of the babies.

I had a funny encounter on Thursday night.  I got home from work late and as I went to the front door, the light came on.  Then I noticed some little legs frantically kicking away under the side gate.  It was a fat toad, who had obviously misjudged the size of his belly v the clearance he had under the gate  :lol:

I carefully teased him out and put him on the big raised bed at the front, where he waddled off to disappear into the plants none the worse for wear  :D
