This Red Underwing (Catocala nupta) is superbly camouflaged to hide itself on the lichen covered cement verge on our house.

Caterpillars are usually quite easy to photograph, but sometimes tricky to identify, luckily we have friends in the local entomological group! The picture on the left is a caterpillar of the Grey Dagger moth (Acronicta psi) and the hairier one on the right the the caterpillar of the Jersey Tiger moth (Euplagia quadripunctaria)
