Chocolate You Can't Eat!........Although bats love em'!
As promised these are some images of a moth known as a Chocolate Tip-Clostera curtula, usually they show their tail, but this specimen didn't for some reason? Very closely related to the Buff Tip moth which I posted yesterday, but a lot more scarce having a very patchy distribution in the southern parts of the England and elsewhere in Scotland.
V2 is a image stack close up of the moth, V3 is a little bit blurry, this is because it's wings were warming up and thus trembling ready to fly off. But it does give an idea of what the wings look like when fully opened.
Apologies for not commenting too much at the moment, it's just life getting in the way of things as usual, but I will try and catch up with every one soon.
