I'm not sure what bird this is - possibly a Gannet? Anyone able to help?
The same bird in flight.
This moth was photographed close to Sheep's Head lighthouse. A kind reader has provided the following information. It's scientific name is Zigena Filipendula, common name: Six-spot Burnet. Apparently the latest scientific name is Antrocera Filipendula. This month belongs to the family Zygaenidae which are popularly known as burnets. Unlike other moths burnets are very active only in the morning (the photo was shot about midday).
