Mullein Moth Larvae in the RSPB Garden, Flatford

There is usually something interesting to see in the RSPB Wildlife Garden at Flatford, and on this occasion it was this eye-catching larva of the Mullein Moth. What a magnificent caterpillar! 

Doesn't it blend in well with the Ox-eye daisies? 

You can see photos of the adult moth here. It is nocturnal and is rarely seen. 

The photo below shows Bridge Cottage on the River Stour in 'Constable Country'. The entrance to the RSPB Wildlife Garden is very close to the far side of the bridge.
