Freaky Large Yellow Underwing

I found this adult Large Yellow Underwing walking across the pavement near my home this morning. I screeched to a halt on my bike to look, thinking it may be a large beetle. The wings have formed completely and with the correct pattern, but on a minute scale, while the body seems perfectly normal. Odd isn't it?

Thats because its wings haven't unfolded yet. I put one looking the same on a tree trunk and watched it expand uts wings
