The Herald overwinters as an adult, and comes to light in the spring, showing its dead-leaf shape and beautiful autumnal colours in quite the wrong season. Hibernating butterfiles also have dead-leaf disguises, but none quite so lovely. I photographed this on one of my collection of bark backgrounds.
I am also seeing some plume moths.
