Douglas, this is a great

Douglas, this is a great image of a smashing moth. Ive added a larva as there seems to be only 1 other larva image on iSpot. I photographed the adult of this species at my front door light in summer 10 but my pic is not good, destroyed by excessive flash! Dont think I can make it worth posting.

Peter, My sincerest apologies

Peter,

My sincerest apologies for not recognizing you posted this lovely marbled beauty.

I think I must have been enjoying the postings of Douglas which were appearing at the same time and I wasnt properly paying attention. I'm really sorry.

Cathal.

I have no problem with being mistaken for the postings of Douglas - they are very good.
