Found in the garden, two Dark Arches Moths about to do what comes naturally Wink V2 shows the male getting a little over excited with his wings all in a flutter. The wife had the same effect on me when we first got together all those years ago Grin

Thanks for stopping by and for all the kind comments on yesterday's image......I'm off back to bed for a few hours now as I've had a horrendous night with the spine Sad Catch up with everyone later.....

A pair of stunning images depicting these wonderfully rustic coloured 'Dark Arches', , and to capture it of superbly a great title, "What more could an admirer ask for?"

Bristol's premier wildlife and macro photographer is on top form today, this is insect photography of the very highest calibre. What impresses me most is that the shot is natural and not staged.
