What on earth is this? It's been on my front door all day. I'd love to know what it is and what I should do? I'm a wimp so not into touching it.

Some kind of moth/catterpillar

It's just a moff, isn't it? Ignore it and it will go away....

Isn't it 2 shagging moths?

That's a moth surely? Having a kip while its bright and hot. I bet he'll be off later and you'll never see him again.

Isn't it two moths together?

ooh yes, two bonking moffs. Still, ignore them, I feel. They will fly away at dusk.

If it is two months, they've been having a great time all day then.

I'm not sure it is though because the 'wing' bits seem to come right up over the head.

At first I thought it was a slug, but the moth-lovers idea is in the lead now.

Prize goes to gin Two moths shagging. Best just to let them get on with it.

Bom-chikka-wow-wow moths grin

A double-ended moth.

google Hawkmoth, they are huge and so beautiful i think. never knew moths existed in that size until i saw one sat on the lampshade enjoying my company! grin

I love moths! grin

Moths a'mating. Smaller one is pointing down. That'll be the male wont it?

I'll swap your moth creature (which I am absolutely terrified of by the way) for the False Widow Spider growing in my window pane. hmm

Ihateigglepiggle Wed 12-Aug-15 19:55:15

You were all right. The one on the bottom is gone now and its partner looks more like a moth now they aren't attached.

I don't know what a false widow spider is, but it sounds terrifying. So, thanks but I'll pass on the swap.
