Welcome to Wild In Britain, an occasional and irregular photo journal of my encounters with all types of wildlife in the British Isles.

A new addition to the list last night was this Barred umber moth. I can't say it took much work to find this one... I let the dog out in the garden and it flew right in. Wildlife photography doesn't get much easier than that. I had to wait about 10 minutes for it to settle down though before taking a quick snap with the phone.
