More Moths

Setting up our moth light and a white(ish) sheet, to see what is out and about at night in our forest, we are always delighted about the variety of species coming to the light.

From the big and bold, like these:

Speiredonia spectans
Opodiphthera fervida

to many medium sized and the very small moths, the colours and patterns always delight.
