Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend.

Here’s another Six Spot Burnet Moth (Zygaena filipendulae), taken at Messingham nature reserve. These are really out in force around here now. I photographed six of them last night on one flower head.

Big is better!

Thanks for looking.

Alan

Great shot Alan. I alwasy find they are a bit prblematic to get to look right, but a great subject nonetheless and you have captured it very well. I also like the structure of plantain heads. All in all a very pleasing picture.
