A burnet moth feeding on ragwort on wasteground near where work, there were a lot of them. As far as I can tell, it’s a narrow bordered 5 spot burnet, any cofirmation or otherwise of this would be welcome. I checked by oicking one up yesterday and it’s a narrow bordered 5 spot! They play dead when disturbed! It’s bright colours warn off predators that it does not taste nice and it is slightly poisoness! Taken with a caonon 450D and canon 100mm macro lens.

Almost retired,and a photography addict! I own a canon 7D and 5 canon lenses. I love playing in photoshop! I’m a fan of HDR if it isn’t too overdone.I also dabble in fractal art occasionally.
