Thanks for the positive comments ladies.
It was a very enjoyable spotting and appropriate for Christmas once I discovered its name.

Came back to view again! One of the best looking moths I have ever seen! Your new pet! (I still wish I could touch the insects I take photos of. Just maybe a caterpillar for me. HA)
