Not as good as some, but I had to share - my first sighting of The Herald. Such a beautiful moth. I was getting all the cobwebs off my log basket (yes, it's that time of year again), making sure there were no nasty surprises coming indoors with it, when out fluttered a 'dead leaf'.
It sat on a very wet path shivering, so after running in and fetching my camera I offerred it a finger, which it quickly crawled onto. After a few more seconds it took wing and I didn't see it again. I'm a bit disappointed with the image, because of the blurred wings, but I'm still pleased I caught it.
Version 2 is equally blurry because of it shivering, but it shows its lovely little stripped legs!
