At 7:15 this morning I was sitting drinking a cup of coffee and minding my own business when, suddenly, I noticed this on the frame of the rooflight above my head.

It is an Angle Shades moth – Phlogophora meticulosa,but then you knew that didn't you. πŸ˜†

It is a slightly odd shape but quite attractive. It's a common moth in England, although I haven't seen one before, and the larvae eat anything. I wonder how long it's been in the house?

I have just noticed that there is a face in there. The dark patches on each side have eyes, there is a nose between the eyes and the cut away shape of the wings adds a mouth.

Big Moth is watching you! 😯
