[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Found in my backyard:

The Brimstone moth (Lepidoptera; Geometridae; Opisthograptis luteolata L; Gelbspanner; La Citronnelle rouillée) is a spectacular sight, even if the wing span is only 35 to 40 mm and the moth active at night. What is the sense of the bright colors at night? The larvae live on fruit trees and can be identified by a hump in the middle of the body. The animal is found in large parts of Europe but saw it for the first time.
