    Mothie, is there a clearer photo you can post? That one is pretty blurry and knowing what part of the world you live in or the photo was taken in will help too. Not all moths are found in all places, some are indigenous to specific areas.

    It's hard to tell from your photograph but it may be an Owl Moth. However, you didn't say what size it is or where you found it. If you could give us a few more details then we might be able to help you out a little more Mothie.

    I do not have much more information :/
    Not a better picture, that is for sure.

    It was found northeast of Spain, near the coast, I would say around may, and it measured about 8 cm from one top of the wing to the other.
