5 Spot Burnet mating

By tonyng
Thank you al for the UA, votes and comments of my last posting. Really appreciated it. Here is a pair of 5-spot burnet moth mating. Personally I would have preferred a better exposure on the lower moth but I suppose we have to take nature as you find them. Thanks for viewing. Have a nice weekend.

Sharp where it matters and considering the kit used, it's all the more impressive....Good stuff Tony...

A good 'un indeed Tony

I remember an eruption of these last year in June, in a meadow down by the river Ant at How Hill

Brilliant Tony - as Ade says "Sharp where it matters". Saw my first of these yesterday and another today - bit like buses! Lou
