Large Yellow Underwing Studies

The large yellow underwing is one of the commonest moths to be seen at this time of year. Often to be found battering windows from July to September, it is a reasonably drab moth in appearance until on the wing, when the orange hindwings become easily visible.

The first specimen below was seen on my folks' window, the second later on flapping away at the door of the cake decorating shop on Baldertongate.

Must be a "Bake Off" fan.
