Moth (Pyraustra aurata)

This little moth is common in Dorset during the summer, flying from May to August.

It is barely 1/4 inch across but the golden spots stand out really well and draw your attention to the moth itself.

Found in meadows and grassy areas generally they often come in to gardens too, especially on warm sunny days (when we get them!).
