Following on from Ade’s (Ade_Osman) upload of a bramble shoot moth a couple of days ago, this is my attempt at capturing it on camera. Not a patch on Ade’s, of course, but I can at least say that mine was tame enough to clamber onto my finger for a couple of shots, and not have to be caught in a moth trap first!

Lovely 'fur-coated' wings. But why does a bramble want to shoot a moth? TongueGrinGrin Lovely captured, Carol, and we've got your prints on file now!!

I took some shots of a moth of a similar size on the kitchen window ledge a while ago, they not bad but not going to upload (not that good).... Anyway, not wanting to hurt him after his posing I left him there to rest a while, Later when washing the pots and I had forgot he was there...... and wiped him up in the dishclothSad.......ooops! Sorry Carol, I didnt mean too.
Great images, V1 my fave, Looks very grumpyGrin
