Knot Grass-Acronicta rumicis
A species that can can vary somewhat in it's appearance and which can be very similar to other Acronicta species. With a wingspan up to 35mm it's a medium size macro moth, common in most of Britain although less so in Scotland. On the wing in May to July, there is a second brood in southern England, appearing in August and September.
V1 & 4 are 52 image stacks close up showing details in the eye and head using the Canon MP-E 65mm, with V2 & 3 showing the moth from a back and side perspective using the Tamron 90mm. V3's probably my favourite, although I must admit to liking the way the stack has come out especially the eye details. As always moth was released unharmed after shooting, in fact I caught the same fella the following night
Thanks as always for looking in and for comment made on my previous uploads......Ade
