A Small Diversion

Although I have never taken an interest in moths there are sometimes occasions when a sighting will change that.Today in my garden I saw on the Hemp-agrimony, three Jersey Tiger moths enjoying its nectar.It is something on the Island to see this moth and three at one time is a treat.The underwing is normally red in colour but there are yellow underwings and rarely black.I was lucky enough to see the normal red and a yellow form.
