Unusual moth by rosiekind

Unusual moth

Steve called me to show me a very unusual moth. It was in the garage and when it flew it showed off beautiful red and orange. Of course I didn’t manage to get a shot of it in flight but I still thought it was worth a photo as even with the wings closed, it still looked rather pretty.
I believe it's called a Jersey Tiger Moth Rosie.

@stevejacob Thanks Steve. You are absolutely right. After looking at Wikipedia it seems that they are quite rare in our neck of the woods! A nice find for Tod

@pcoulson Yes I have looked it up after Steve identified it and you are correct. It’s unusual to find in our neck of the woods

What an intriguing pattern! It sort of looks like our neighbor's dog's fancy dogbed!
