Photographer's Note

Doing some much needed pruning in the garden today, trying to fight off the brambles and nettles which come under the fence from the canal tow path. I came across this moth, all pruning abandoned whilst I tried to take a photo. Sadly it is slightly blurred, might try again if it's still there.
I of course had to google it, apparently it is a magpie moth and it likes hawthorn and nettles. Maybe I should give up pruning.
