Description:

I posted one of these before. this one was in the same hide, but it's not the same moth - it's in beautiful condition, and the other one was pretty tatty.
At one point it landed on someone's cheek; fortunately she did not (as some might) panic, but walked calmy to a nearby hawthorn, where the moth dismounted.
