Isn't this beautiful. We bumped into our lovely neighbour Veronique on Sunday and she had a book in her hand. She was trying to find the name of a moth that they’d found on a wall near their home. It turned out be the Giant Peacock Moth, the largest moth or butterfly in Europe with a wingspan of between 10 and 20cm. This one was around 15cm. It’s nocturnal, so doesn't feed during it’s short life of around a week but spends it reproducing.
