Nice find, not one I'd get

Nice find, not one I'd get here, not the right habitat - they need heathland and moorland.

Best wishes,

Douglas

Douglas I almost didnt bother

Douglas I almost didnt bother to stop to snap this, I didnt know what it was. I had to stop photographing emperor cats, which were up high in the heather in their thousands on a wet night. It was 2am and I still had a 45 min descent to do to get to the car, I photographed this and then legged it. Glad I took the photo because it seems to be an under-recorded moth and now I know where to target the adult.

Cheers,

Cathal.
