Inside flying around then settled on fridge. Need help - have no idea what the moth is. Smallish but not tiny - was 2cm at widest part and 2 cm long. What caught my eye was the "tunnell" over its head.

Not 100% sure I've got the identificaton right - but thought the wings were too rounded to be an eagle ray. There was one ray when I arrived and there must have been 4 or 5 by the time I left.

was excited to see this yellow admiral. Normally only get whites and monarchs in the garden. In fact have lived here 16 years and this is only the second admiral I've seen. The other one was the red admiral.
