I was working in the garden yesterday afternoon and saw this creature making it's way across the drive.

Buff-tip larva

I took a few photographs and managed to find some time today to have a go at identifying it. Turned out to be quite a straightforward identification as a Buff-tip moth larva. This will overwinter in an earth chamber before the adult is flying in May, and will become a wonderful looking moth. and I started trapping a bit too late this year to catch one of these, but I will be looking out for these next year.
