Cinnabar moth on alfalfa

This was a ‘serendipity’ photograph but an easy one because the cinnabar moth didn’t look like it was going anywhere soon.

We used to find cinnabar moth caterpillars, which are striped orange and black, on ragwort in the Norfolk dunes, but I’ve never found any here.

The flower the moth is drinking deep from is alfalfa.
