Moth

By Dennis.Alden  
Well the 20D has been repaired and the new 30D has been claimed by she who must be obeyed! The first thing I could find to test it out was this rather nondescript moth - anybody with an idea what it is? I found an image on the web of a July Belle that looked similar - but then found others claiming to be the same species that were quite different. It would seem that moths can be somewhat varied in their morphs!

Could be a Fanfoot or a Small Fanfoot, somebody out there will know I'm sure.

Lovely detail, a nice picture even though the moth is "nondescript". It's a great ID shot, and I agree with fan-foot.

Watcha Dennis,
nice capture of a bird pecked moth, guddun.
Don't know what it is, we have something like 3k types of moth and each one of them can be different according to area and pollution.
best
