BUFF TIP MOTH


A master of disguise, at rest this distinctive moth resembles a broken birch twig in colour, size and shape. Conversely, the caterpillar is a bit easier to spot, being big, hairy, with black and yellow stripes. The first photo below shows one that recently pupated in amongst a wildflower patch in an Otley garden.
