Morning Magic.


The Jersey Tiger Moth  Euplagia quadripunctaria
 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 
Seen early morning in my garden, this striking moth is one of the most attractive of the Tiger moths. It flies both in the daytime, when it can be found feeding on various flowers, as well as at night, when it is attracted to light.I first published the Tiger moth in 2012, when I saw one in the garden at night, and this is only my second sighting. The main flight period is July to September,and the hairy larvae feed on a range of herbaceous plants including nettle (Urtica). I am joining in the party at Saturday Critters, just click on the link to see more critters from around the world.

The Jersey Tiger Moth photos are wonderful! I have several Tiger moths in my garden but rarely get to see and photograph them, and not in action like yours. I like the ones where you captured the red underwings, but the ones on the lantana with the wings folded up are breathtaking! They look like a work of art, the zebra of the moth world.
