Silver Y Moth

Standard

Had to rescue this little Silver Y moth snoozing on the stairs before s/he got hoovered up!  (Not the best pic taken through plastic!  The Ys, however, are visible on each wing.)

Couldn’t release Silvery into the lashing rain, so took her to the garden lean-to.  She’s snoozing.  Come dusk she’s free to fly into the night – or back through the window into the house!
