That is an unusual moth. I've never seen anything like it before.

Don't know it's name but it looks like the world's Air Forces used it for design! What a neat little fellow.

Oh the 'kids' look content though.

Love from this side of the pond.

Don't know it's name. But that is a very impressive moth. And you're right it does look like a leaf.

I think George is a very appropriate name.

I never heard of anyone giving a moth a name before. George seems like a good one. I have no idea what he is, but he is big.

I had the same moth Ally. Two courting each other, and I thought it was my holly leaves stuck to the wall after a windy day.

You were as fascinated as me lolol.
