A few more mothing favourites from six weeks of trapping. The full collection can be seen with captions in my Lepidoptera gallery on Imaging Storm.

It was Mrs Sciencebase spotting this Copper Underwing (Amphipyra pyramidea) in our garden on 23rd July 2018, that motivated me to borrow Rob’s actinic trap and begin my mothing career…
