Silver Y - Autographa gamma

I know there are quite a few in the gallery for this year all ready but this one was different, I haven't seen one posed like this before. Was it releasing pheremones to attract a mate or had it recently emerged from its pupa (not found) and drying and finishing unfurling its wings? 18-08-2016
