    Default Jersy tiger moth

    Ful 2 inch wing span.

    I was lucky. A wasp suddenly dinged the moth and he opened his wings wide then the wasp dinged him again and he moved sideways
    Such is this beautiful moth I just had to share with you

    Thanks Rolf.
    No Moths tend to keep their wings closed. I was lucky that the wasp attacked it

    I guess that showing the wasp the red underwings was a warning! Superbly designed moth!
