Adela rosella, otherwise known as a fairy moth, is a moth of the Adelidae family and found in most of Europe. They are normally on the wing from late May until the end of June, and fly during the day in sunshine. I spotted this one, and many more, only a week ago. The males have very long antennae, up to four times the length of their wings, and use them to attract a female. They flit around, waving their white-tipped antennae, and look rather like dancing fairies. As this little critter is so very tiny, barely half the size of my little finger nail, these are not very good images, but I was so pleased to capture a couple showing his proboscis. V.4 is my contribution towards the Saturday shadows theme.

All great shots with bucket loads of interest. I have no idea how you do it Carol, I wouldn't even be able to see them being that small!
