Burnet Companion

I took this photo of a Burnet Companion on my patch at Norchard yesterday. I assume the green abdominal appendage is the pheremone gland. Not seen that before.
Also a large fall of Diamond-back moths here today. They appear to have come via the East and all seem very pale, as though they have travelled a long way. Flushed around ten in my garden.


  1. Did you watch the Burnet Companion for long? I just wondered whether it might be ovipositing?

    1. It may have been Patrick, it did not stay still for very long. It was the only one present, plus a solitary female Common Blue butterfly.
