Knot Grass-Acronicta rumicis

A species that can can vary somewhat in it's appearance and which can be very similar to other Acronicta species. With a wingspan up to 35mm it's a medium size macro moth, common in most of Britain although less so in Scotland. On the wing in May to July, there is a second brood in southern England, appearing in August and September.

V1 & 4 are 52 image stacks close up showing details in the eye and head using the Canon MP-E 65mm, with V2 & 3 showing the moth from a back and side perspective using the Tamron 90mm. V3's probably my favourite, although I must admit to liking the way the stack has come out especially the eye details. As always moth was released unharmed after shooting, in fact I caught the same fella the following night Wink

Thanks as always for looking in and for comment made on my previous uploads......Ade Smile

V.3 is my favourite from this grand trio, Ade. No photography for me today, it's blowing a strong northerly wind here Sad Carol

A fantastic set of macros Ade, just what we've come to expect from a man of your calibre. V3 is my favourite, it certainly is a beautifully marked little moth. This individual must really like you or be incredibly stupid as he's flown into your trap on consecutive days!Wink

Although the details in 1 and 4 are brilliant, I think I prefer seeing the wings - so today my favourites are 2 & 3! Grin
