Some pics!

A couple of Pyrausta aurata moths that seem to love my oregano plants at the moment. Had seen lots of posts on Wild About Britian about them and thought they were really pretty, then suddenly spotted them in my garden and have taken about a million photos now! They can be mistaken for Pyrausta purpuralis.

Another one 🙂

A small copper butterfly in the park

A common blue butterfly in the park (alongside convienient ladybird 🙂 )

As yet unidentified caterpillar. Looks like a geometrid? – also called inchworms or loopers, named because of the way they move, appearing to measure the earth (the word geometrid means earth-measurer in Greek).
