Willow Beauty

It's that time of year again when these little 'beauties' are around and getting worn.
If you find one you are having trouble with, the underside of the fore-wing can be of help and is usually easy to see when it is in a pot.
The very tip of the fore-wing has a small, square'ish, light coloured patch. We caught this one this morning and having chased it round the conservatory a couple of times it finally agreed to become a model.  The first photo also shows the antenna detail mentioned in the field guides.
