We have an amazing totally white thing on the back door. Any ideas what it is? About 3cm across.
They’re common in the UK, though I have no idea about the name.
Never seen one here. In Oz we tend to have huge scary black things flying about
Pterophorus pentadactyla (white plume moth in UK)
It seems that here in France they are known as “petit ange de nuit” which I think is a lovely description… and they lay their eggs on bindweed, which is subsequently munched by the larvae…
As @Stella suggests it is a Pterodactyl
@toryroo Be careful though as they can grown up to about 11m - they are quite rare though as not seen for a while in these parts. Unlikely that one of these will scare you given that you come from the land where every creature wants to kill you!
That’s nine! It’s flown over to your place
