I spotted this tiny moth perched on a reed, looking for all the world like a twig. It was only when it flew off that I realised it was alive Smile I hope one of you moth experts can ID it for me.
Many thanks to all who clicked/commented/gave user awards to my month end montages, so much appreciated.

Interesting find, well taken.

Can't help with an ID Carol but as always I'm amazed at how close you can get, they always fly off whenever I come stumbling along.

When I was tiny I got told off by my mum for saying I had an "itchy snitch". This just reminded me of it.

Glad you got the moff before it flew off, Carol. Excellent doff on this inoffensive looking critter who caught you offguard, with its offbeat snout, offering you a photo opportunity.
