Sheltering in the Greenhouse

I've found and posted so many photos of Angle Shades moth caterpillars and pupae over the years, but look what was sheltering in the greenhouse today - a rather impressive-looking moth. It may have only recently emerged.
At the other end of the greenhouse was this little bee.
It's most likely a Common Carder bumblebee, like the one that was identified for me in my previous post. This Photo is a bit out of focus, but I like that you can see the stripes and the wings are in focus!

  1. The moth looks well adapted to blend in with a woody background.


Please leave a comment. I'm very pleased to receive corrections or confirmations of my identification of the creatures we've spotted on the allotment.
