Emerald moth

P1000068 emerald mothWe were lucky to find this Common Emerald Moth in our vehicle the other day. Its size is just around 1cm across, so probably much smaller than the screen image you’re looking at.

The wing has amazing depth, just like a carpet, as shown in this crop of the wing from another photo.
