Moth and flowers

Whilst exploring the Reserve the other day several of us came across this moth in Upper Sowerholme which has now been identified as a male ‘Drinker’ Euthris potatoria. I know nothing about moths so I am not sure whether this is rare or not but it isn’t in our Collins Book of Moths and Butterflies so it can’t be all that common!

And, more prosaically, are a few more flowers

Lords and ladies in the Orchard. About to turn red but the almost always fall over when red so this will have to do for the moment.
