25th May 2012 – Moth – Can you Identify it?

I came across this moth on the gravel path, perfectly camouflaged.  If it hadn’t been for the wind moving its wings I probably would not have noticed it.  It was about 5 inches across.  It did not move even though I got very close up to it.

I was tempted to take a monochrome photo of it but then you would miss out on the subtle blues and greys that are so evident on this mammoth creature.

So, if you know what type of moth it is, I’d love to hear from you.
