Yes, tapped from long grass to tray, to wet to use a sweep net. Although not to active, (hence the number of shots), it did eventually fly off.

You'll be surprised what comes to the tray even on frosty days.

tap & sweep

I've never tried tapping or sweeping, I have a 4 inch fish-tank net and I wait for the sun to coax stuff out. Can't wait to give it a try now though
