Large Red Underwing moth

Observation - Large Red Underwing moth - UK and Ireland. Description: I nearly jumped out of my skin when this huge moth suddenly came in through an open window at about 9.30pm and started batting frantically around the ceiling light! My camera couldn't get a good photo of the moth as it settled on a worktop - hence the rat

I nearly jumped out of my skin when this huge moth suddenly came in through an open window at about 9.30pm and started batting frantically around the ceiling light! My camera couldn't get a good photo of the moth as it settled on a worktop - hence the rather odd yellow orange cast to the image.
