Hi Ruth Is it a bird I cant work out what it is

talj said...

You do get some weird looking plants down in suffolk dont you? ;o)

Mark said...

Hi Ruth, It's a Comma butterfly, it gets it's name from the white comma you can see on its underwing.
I'm suprised it hasnt got an umbrella with it, with the amount of rain we are having. It's funny how only last week everyone was hoping for rain and now as it hasn't stopped for a week how we want the sun back.

On a completely seperate note could you tell me where you got the solar powered dragonflies from , as i think they would look fantastic dotted around my garden.
Cheers Mark

Hi Ruth,....A " Happy Mother's Day " to you....I think it is a moth.
I am up for today. Baba

CG said...

that's a fantastic moth!!

Leonie said...

Wow, isn't that butterfly/moth beautiful! I had to look really closely, it looks like a piece of bark.

What a cool looking butterfly.
It looks like a chunck of wood.
Happy Sunday.

Genie said...

Ruth, that's amazing -- what a cool photo! Is it a beneficial moth or butterfly?

Christa said...

That's so interesting. I've never seen a butterfly (or moth) like that!

Lynn said...

Oh my this is amazing!
We don't have too many butterflies here. We get alot of bees and hummingbirds. But we are low on butterflies

mine is up late

Michelle said...

How unusual! It does, like the others said, look like a piece of bark! You have a beautiful garden!! Happy Mother's Day, and Happy GTS! :)

skeet said...

Amazing woody-looking thing, isn't it? Great photo and I'm glad I'm late because I got to see the answer for what it is, lol! Nice GTS entry!
