Cream-spot Tiger

I took these photos of a Cream-Spot Tiger that I disturbed in an area of chalk grassland and scrub adjoining Bluewater Shopping Centre. It looks like the Centre-in an old chalk quarry-is surrounded by semi-maintained wetlands and chalk grassland. These proved very productive for all forms of wildlife, including moths. It seems that Bluewater Shopping Centre makes a great day-out, especially if you avoid the shops!!
