We’ve had shots of the Burnet Moth caterpillar and chrysalis: now meet the moth! Probably a Six-spot Burnet, it is on an Ox-eye daisy, and if you look carefully, you can see there are a lot more on the bright blue flowers of the viper’s bugloss behind it. Caught by George on the walk at the side of the Weymouth Relief Road 03/06/2017.
