Cream Bordered Green Pea at Fort Kinnaird

My wife took this photo with her phone outside M&S at Fort Kinnaird today and emailed me asking what it was. Never seen one or heard of one of these before but easy to identify.

Thanks Iain,

Reckon you're right. :) I'm no moth expert and just Googled "green moth" to ID it. The Pea seemed to fit the bill but an Emerald it is of course.
