Zygaena filipendulae

By tomcat    
A break from the birds for this evening's upload. A Six-spot burnet Zygaena filipendulae, taken last summer at Aston Rowant.

A tad late in uploading this evening. One of the external HD's, went tits up as soon as I fired the 'puter up.Sad
Fortunately it was the power supply (possibly a burnt out circuit board), so a quick trip to PC world and purchased an ex HD caddy.
Arrived home and realised they had given me EDI and not Satta - back to PC World and found out they hadn't any Satta in stock.
Fortunately Maplins is only next door and they duly had one. All up and running againSmile

A bit of a hit and run time this evening I'm afraid - other things to sort out, which I would have already completed, if it hadn't been for that damn HDWink

Sorry to hear of your problems this least you knew what to do about it......I wouldn't have had a clue.
After that brief digression, this is a superb macro shot of this moth, the detail recorded quite excellent, and standing out against the paler b/g so well.

Details and colours are so sharply defined. Another superb image.

Totally dread my external HD dying off! Wouldn't have the foggiest what to do.
