    1. As you know there are several of these ‘beauty’ moths which look very similar and can be a real pain to id with accuracy. I had to get this checked myself, and it came back as the Willow Beauty.

    1. Oh, another confession. The moth was caught in my trap last night and I gently placed him on an old piece of bark for a more natural look. Photographed on an egg box just would not be quite the same πŸ™‚

    1. I have a confession Anne. I caught the moth – and many of the others you see in these here posts – in my moth trap, and I gently pose them on and old piece of bark to try and get a more naturalistic image πŸ™‚
