Mint Moth

Being a sufferer of Mottephobia I was surprised that I was drawn to this beautiful little first generation brown and yellow Mint Moth sitting on some Lily foliage.  I was even more surprised that I was able to take this picture without panicking.  

Had it had its wings open, been in-flight or on my clothing I would have been a trembling mess of fear and dread - Moths generally make me cringe, especially at nighttime.

This creature can normally be seen near Mint or Thyme both of which are potted up nearby.
