The two Jersey Tigers above are from Emily Tutton, taken near the athletic (previously Olympic) stadium in Stratford, East London. She says the moth was "friendly and beautiful" and also manages to get a pose on her hand. She adds "I thought you might like the pictures as your site helped me to identify it!" (Always glad when the site serves its purpose.)
