Six-Spot Burnet

The Six-spot Burnet is in fact a moth found in the day time flying about and landing on small thistles or ragwort plants and grasses, in this case on the coastline dunes and grasses where they were mating. They are very colourful for a reason, they are toxic and are full of arsenic hence the colourful markings to warn predators off.

Latin

Zygaena filipendulae (Zygaenidea)
