Light Brown Apple Moth, emerged today from larva found on osier, Pilton Green, Gower earlier in the summer.

Twenty years ago, the Small Ranunculus moth was considered extinct in this country. Its fortunes have revived considerably - here is the larva feeding in full view by the side of the river in the centre of Bath.

Well spotted! It clearly pays to remain observant at all times - mind you, I wouldn't have known what it was - or recognised the significance.

Interesting set of images there Matsukaze - especially the Brick Moth as I think you've helped me make an ID that I've had kicking around for a while, cheers :D :D

Have a goodun

Some cracking moths there, Matsukaze, especially the Pink Barred Sallow and, of course, the Snout, which does indeed resemble one of the more advanced combat aircraft in the world....perhaps we are learning from nature as we evolve!
