Chrysoteuchia culmella sometimes known as a Grass Veneer Moth!

Apologies for not being around to comment etc, this is due to my mental health going pear shaped again I'm afraid, bi-polar disorder/PTSD caused by the brain injuries in the accident I had years ago. Things are in hand and under control and I have the Crisis Team from the local NHS Trust watching over me like a hawk and I've several appointments with the Clinical Psychologist to attend over the next week. I'm still about and putting my head through the door occasionally, but I'm sure you'll understand why it is I'm a little on the quiet side and will be for the foreseeable next few weeks. However, I did want to just come in and wish a Happy Xmas and a successful New Year to everyone whose been kind enough to comment and correspond with me on EPZ over the last year. So here's hoping everyone has a peaceful and great time over the festive period, regards to all.......

Ade

P.S. For those interested, I'm still managing to run the Garden Webcams and have made arrangements for them to continue over the festive period while I'm having this wobbly spell, as usual the place to go is Ade's Hedgehog & Garden Wildlife Cams although as you might imagine because of the time of year, there isn't that much happening.

Hi Ade - a lovely shot..............it looks like it's trying to hide from you, but the details you've captured are as sharp as ever! Smile

I pop into your garden regularly (if just to compare the weather!!), though the foxes call a little too late for me!

Best Wishes,
Karen

We have a butterfly here in Texas called a snubnose butterfly, looking similar in the front as this moth.

Glad to hear you are getting things under control. My father and John's mother were both bi-polar. I know well the challenges you face.
