Moths and Insects.

John had a Mothing night in the week, nothing very exciting (or colourful), but the grandchildren enjoyed it. Not all of these Moths are from the trap, some are from the past few weeks and some are day-flyers. It's taken hours to try to name them and I suspect some will be incorrect.























This Bumble Bee did manage to escape, not so, this poor Grasshopper.

  9. Fabulous macros! The details you can see in the photos really make you appreciate how lovely each kind of insect is. The green silver-lines is my favorite with its rich color and lush fur set off by those silver lines!

    cheers,
