Cinnabar moth (adult)

At last, with a bit of good finding from my daughter, I managed to find an adult Cinnabar moth which would hang around long enough to snap. Note its more delicate build reflected in weaker flight than the superficially similar burnets (see other recent postings), and the thin, flimsy, unclubbed antennae (excuse the poor pic, it was getting dark).
Incidentally, the hungry caterpillars, having eaten most of the leaves and flowers on the original plant, have now spread from two plants to lots of ragworts in the garden.

Cinnabar moth, our garden, Peterborough, 20.7.04.
