Angle Shades Moth (Phlogophora meticulosa)
I've seen many Angle Shades moths in the past but never really appreciated just how beautiful and chunky they are until I photographed this specimen as it dried its wings in the sun to start its new adult life.

The Angle Shades is a moth of the family Noctuidae. It is a common and familiar European species and is often strongly migratory.
