Thanks to Tom Murray, I finally have an ID for this green emerald moth which had been confusing me for some time. For a fantastic set of moth photos, check out Tom's galleries here:

Wow! Splendid capture.

most interesting colour - from a literal viewpoint it doesn't seem to be white fringed and does have a wavy line!

I thought from the thumbnail that this was a picture of leaves, but much to my surprise there was also this beautifully colored and patterned moth. Super closeup, Christine. V.
