I don't think they come this far north! Do you know a good web site for identifying caterpillars (in the UK)? I spotted a black caterpillar with orange stripes but can't find it on a search.

This website seems to think you can find plume moths in the highlands - not sure about where you live though.

You should submit any records as there are not many from the highlands.

ISpot is meant to be a good website.

Wow, that's unusual. Are they common in your part of the world?

Hi Annie, not a common sight here in the Dordogne, but most years, I find one or two.

A Painted Lady sipping a thistle. Only tip to getting shots that I can think of is walk slow and soft, and don't let your shadow fall over them.
