First time for Skywatch

I've seen several Skywatch photos on various blogs and thought I'd join in the fun.
These are taken from my back gate of my garden in Frome Somerset.
This one last night with a little bit of sunset.....
....and this one today from the same spot (more or less) with a nice bunch of clouds.

The following is a moth that I took a photo of yesterday on my kitchen wall, but I can't find it in my new moth book, if anyone can point me in the right direction, that would be great. Many thanks....

Very nice Sky Watch photos from your place! In fact, I've enjoyed looking around your blog. You have lots of great nature shots.

Hi Roy, anytime! (-: Am hoping to go to Portland tomorrow, fingers crossed.

Hi Carla. Many thanks for stopping by. I've just been to look at your blog. Wow, you have some amazing butterflies over there! Thanks again

Oh, good...I'm glad you decided to join in! That header picture is wonderful and the same scene in other lights look wonderful! It's always so interesting to see where others live :-) Thanks for the laugh on my site about what SWF was!

Welcome to Skywatch, Jenny. It is a wonderful community to feel part of.

Your images give me a little insight into your life for which I thank you.

I am not able to assist with identifying the moth, but I do admire the tapestry of his "plumage".

First time and hopefully not the last! Welcome to the Skywatch "Cult".
It's really fun to see skies from allover - and yours are truly beautiful! Like the 1st two especially!
Cheers, Klaus

Oh so pretty! You live in a very beautiful spot! :)

Hi - I can't say for sure but your moth reminds me of the Marbled Coronet Hadena confus. It's another extremely variable species.
