Rhoose Point

Spotted this newly emerged moth on the lawn this afternoon - looking at the size, distinctive head shape and the wing markings I'd say it is most likely a Large Yellow Underwing.  Not often I see moths before their wings have fully formed!


  1. I'd say definitely Large Yellow Underwing.

  2. It was indeed. Fascinating to see the wings expanding which I haven't seen close up before. For something so tiny it lost a lot of liquid during the process. Any idea why?
