What is this?


Can anyone identify this please?
The photo was taken on Marcle Hill in Herefordshire last week.

Well .... what's its name?

I've looked at various sites and think it's a cinnabar moth.

Ah, you found it. That's what I thought it was too, although I've never been lucky enough to see one in the flesh - if that is the appropriate term.

Ann, it was quite thrilling to see and it flew around us for several minutes. It's colour was amazing - such a contrast to the green grass and nettles.
