Transparent Burnet Moth

There’s what looks like a Transparent Burnet moth, Zygaena purpuralis in the park.

The larvae feed on wild thyme, which is exactly what I’ve been having here in Italy, just spelled differently. It’s back to Britain shortlyand species I’m more familiar with. I’ll be hoping to continue having a wilder life in Devon before having an even wilder one in Orkney.

Let’s have a wild time together.
