        Gosh, how lucky! They are tree-top butterflies and don't often come down to the ground.

        edit: Actually, looking at the white tips on its wings and the way they are held leads me to think it may be a chimney sweeper moth, annie

        • Gosh you might be right, hadnt considered a moth as was during the day but l see that it is seen in daytime. Either way I was quite chuffed to see something different.

          • Saw an interesting spider on the lemon verbena. Internet is suggesting it is a cucumber green orb spider? Click image for larger version  Name:	8CF8672F-202D-4ED3-B2BA-E9CF6B8EFB61.jpeg Views:	0 Size:	199.3 KB ID:	2548629

                I believe it is a herald moth. I've never seen one before.
