We all know that there is Ade and everybody else when it comes to moths. Some moths though make a lot of noise like hawk moths or are so colourful that even mere mortal see them in bright daylight Smile
this one just begged to be photographed on the last bright day at the mozzie lake, end of September. Zygaena fausta or the haether zygene as it is called here is a very pretty moth closely related to the spotted burnet moth.

many thanks for you kind votes and comments on the Zinnia. Will upload the big picture in the future Smile

Some of Ade's moths look like leaves or twigs to me annette,
so it is easy to spot this one right enough !!
Well coloured shots
(And just between you and me,I am sure that Ade is having us on.
One of his moths looked like a leaf of my roll up tobacco !!)

Two stunning high quality macro photographs Annette, each crammed with so much wonderful colour, detail and light. Very hard to choose a particular favourite , soI shall sit firmly on the proverbial fence.
