Hi everyone, I hope you are well.

This is a Six Spot Burnet Moth (Zygaena filipendulae) Captured at Messingham nature reserve on Sunday evening. It was precariously balanced on the top of this tall grass, so I made good use of my plamp attaching one end to the grass and the other to my bag, that way there is no vibration when using the camera.

Thanks for looking.

Please view large if you have the time.

Have a good day.

Alan

Thanks everyone.

Gill. It is very useful, a must have for macro work. Vibration can be transferred through it when using/focusing the camera if you attach it to the tripod, so I try and attach it to my bag or my brolly, which I can stick in the ground.

Thanks Alan
