Magpie Moth

My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is the Magpie Moth (Abraxas grossulariata).

A very widespread species found across Eurasia north of the Himalayas, North Africa and North America. This individual was photographed in a garden in Hatherton near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England. It gets its common English name from the black and white pattern on its wings.

One Word Sunday, Flora and Fauna Friday.
