Butterflies and moths

Pale Brindled Beauty

I found this beautiful moth by the outside light last night. It is one of very few species which are able to fly during the coldest months of the year and I have read reports of Pale Brindled Beauties surviving being completely encased in ice. The other species likely to be seen at this time of year is the Winter Moth. In both species the female is wingless.
