I can’t really remember very much about this photograph, except it was very likely taken up on the cliff top paths of Polperro, Cornwall, sometime in the early part of the 2000s. I can tell you the insect pictured is a Six Spot Burnett, the wildflower is Purple Vetch, and this photograph was taken on slide film, hence the rather oceanic quality of the light and colour.

Thanks for naming the insect. I see those here quite often and have never known what they are called.

To be 100% honest, I always thought it was a Cinnabar moth, but did a bit of research before posting it on here… to discover I was wrong!
