Good evening folks,
A bit of a change for me today. I don't usually do moths, due to the difficulty of obtaining subjects.
Hopefully this will now change as I have now got into moth trapping on a regular basis.
This is a quite common species and I thought a good one to start with.
Hope you all like it.
Colin

A beautiful capture, I love the colours and details. I often see the caterpillar but rarely the moth!! Smile

A cracking close up Colin, such wonderful detail and colouring. I see that the Big O has converted you to the dark side!Wink
