Look, it's even got a little smile

Here is a Spectacle Moth, so-called for obvious reasons, though you have to look at it front-on to understand the name. From above it is a mixture of blacks, greys and the like, which I am afraid is true of a lot of British moths. On close inspection, however, the patterns of these colours are often beautiful. It's just a pain trying to tell the species apart.
