These moths are so gorgeous!
Not easy to find them unless one attracts them with light at night! I've tried it this summer with a Lepidoptera specialist but the weather was too cold for anything truly interesting sadly!
Great pictures!

Thanks Noushka for the feedback! Never tried attracting moth to light.
