Common Carpet Moth
This wasn't very large, but I knew it wasn't a cabbage white.

False Tiger Moth
I have seen these moths on my last few visit - they are large, brightly coloured and active during the day. I had tried taking photos while they were in flight, but they are so active I always failed. This trip I tried harder to find them on plants and had some luck!
Species: Dysphania militaris (False Tiger Moth)
