    Thanks..

    for the replies. I was wondering whether it was a butterfly or some sort of moth. Butterfly Bushes really do work!!

    Ah, but you got there half a second quicker because you knew what it was instantly, I only thought I knew so had to check first :biggrin:

    Very nice. We call it the Thistle Butterfly which is closer to the latin name I believe.
