Guide

Cathal, I have an image of one in a guide and it looks very very similar indeed, so I think it's it. Lovely set of moth images this morning by the way. Regards Chris

Cheers Chris, I learnt

Cheers Chris,
I learnt something new today re Phoenix and Small phoenix moth, thanks to Ophrys.
I was so sure I'd recorded in Co Mayo, the species which had eluded me at home in Antrim.

Thanks again for the above ID, I was lucky and pleased to get the above 2 images, when I went for another angle, it flew away.

Cathal.

iSpot

Cathal, that's the beauty of iSpot and life in general, you learn something new every day. I have to say some differences between species are very small indeed. Chris

Absolutely Chris, iSpot has

Absolutely Chris, iSpot has been such a discovery. Great for clarifying things and for putting your mind at rest when it isnt possible to bring an image to species!

It has openned my mind a good bit(and it needed some opening). Very educational.

Cathal.
