It's the very rare Bullfighting Moth! You don't ever want to come face to face with one of these guys, especially in the dark!
In actual fact it's a "67" image stack of a very small Treble Lines moth, which is only about 20mm long in total, but it has the look of a raging bull.......Almost
Moth was cooled in the fridge before taking the images so as to help keep it still for the length on time needed and was released back into the wild alive and unharmed once shooting had finished.
Had this one in last months "EPZ Nature Competition" but as usual it came nowhere
