In the golden afternoon light, something dropped from the willow blowing in the wind and hit my Daughter on the head. "Mum" she called "Something just fell on my head, it's a bird's wing, or maybe a baby bird, it has feathers."
It took me a while to work out it was two large moths Mating. They eventually parted company and I bought this stick near to them, they both instantly climbed on, at a distance from each other and I propped them up in the olive tree as their best camouflage option.
I love the distinct black and white band on the bottom edge of its wings! I think this is the male and the slightly warmer toned one on the underside of the stick is the female, though I am just basing this on what I know about the colouring of birds, I have no technical knowledge of anything to do with Moths.
