I meant to post this picture a week ago when a friend emailed it to me after finding the cattie in Kirtlington Park. It was, appropriately, under a lime tree, which led even me in the right direction when she asked me what it was. A Lime Hawk in the making.

Secondly, I am sure I will feel stupid when you identify the one below, but it has me scratching my head. Now back to Adam's extremely helpful guide to sorting out Thorns (below).

  1. It's a Straw Underwing, Martin
