Check these beauties out:
|Ruby Tiger (Phragmatobia fuliginosa)|
|Brown-Line Bright-Eye (Mythimna conigera)|
|Poplar Hawkmoth (Laothoe populi). This moth was in a kind of 'torpor' when we looked at it but it slowly began to warm up and beat its wings furiously. Eventually it took off like a Harrier jump jet!|
"yeah, I had a Setaceous Hebrew Character outside this morning"
"nice going, I had a Lime-Speck Pug and an Old Lady in my trap..." *
Moth ID is pretty new to me so I'm looking forward to exploring them a bit more in the coming weeks.
*all real names.
