Pink

Was the pink colour in the left hand picture apparent on the moth or just a result of the photograph?

It's something I've only just

It's something I've only just noticed now but it was definitely not just the photograph. I've added another photo, where you can see some element of pink on the legs.

Is it unusual for Spectacles to have pink?

Best wishes,

Douglas

Reddish

On the photo you have added it looks a lot more reddish rather than pink. The brown-red colour would not be unusual.

Yes, the legs were more

Yes, the legs were more reddish.

It must just have been a trick of the light.
