Moth identification

My random act of wildness was made easy today when this moth decided to sit on the outside of the window and pose for a photo!

While butterflies have the colour to make them stand out, moths are surprisingly pretty in their own way – I hadn’t expected this moth to have such delicate fringes on the edges of its wings!

The lighting wasn’t ideal for the photo, but I think it’s a Mother of Pearl moth. According to UK Moths, in certain light the wings seem to have a pearl-like shine.
