Magnificent Moth

Magnificent Moth

I spent the afternoon with my friend Nikki at RHS Wisley Gardens having a good, girly catch-up, spotting butterflies and this marvellous moth!

I’m pretty sure it’s Noctuidae (Family) Plusiinae (Subfamily), possibly either the Ni Moth (Trichoplusia ni) or a Silver Y (Autographa gamma). I shall run it by the experts to make sure!

We saw a number of other butterflies among the abundant flowers in the borders and wildflower meadow! Next week we’ll visit again with the children in tow. They want to see the WI Scarecrow Trail 🙂
