A caterpillar of the mullein moth, Cucullia verbasci = Shargacucullia verbasci (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) on water figwort (Scrophularia auriculata).  I also saw another on a dark mullein plant (Verbascum nigrum) but that photo wasn't as clear.

Photo taken in the field below Chazey Wood, near Caversham, UK, on 2011-06-09.
