Angle Shades

I found this moth indoors on the curtains where it sat motionless, making it easy to capture and carefully transport to the garden. A new one for me, its Angle Shades (Phlogophora meticulosa). The first pic was taken outside where the colours are more vivid, and the second pic taken indoors shows its unusual side profile.

  3. Such a lovely species, Linda - what a find. I've yet to trap one. Old railways are such interesting places to look for wildlife.
