The first Blair`s shoulder-knot of the autumn.
A Blair`s shoulder-knot was in the home actinic last night. This cypress-feeding species is often found in suburban situations where appropriate conifers grow - I used to get caterpillars on one of my garden trees until I cut it down. A male brimstone butterfly was flying in blustery sunshine out in the garden about 5mins ago - quite late in the season.
