Now That's What I Call A Moth!

Just a quick report on what was in my moth trap this morning, which was my best catch so far this spring. 'The moth' in my title refers to the Eyed Hawkmoth that greeted me as I peered into the trap after breakfast. Not rare, but a cracking beastie all the same.

The supporting cast consisted of a Brimstone Moth, 3 Light Brown Apple Moths, 2 Dark Arches, 3 Heart and Darts and a single Common Pug.

Its eyes to screen and fingers to keyboard for the rest of the day for me I'm afraid!
