Our Chimney sweeper leaves a few good spots behind too ! LOL
Hazel in the Gironde estuary, France
I had a few good ones again lately, this one I saw in the Pyrenees a few years ago but never here, a Scarlet Tiger, it landed on my shoe!
& alongside it was a Cream-Spot Tiger looking up at me
so I popped them on the sheet as I didn't want to tread on them
& a little tiddler yesterday morning Caloptilia stigmatella
It rains most days at the moment so it's a case of dashing out a the last minute if it looks like it might be dry!
None of this wine and sugar soaked rope nonsense, eh, just wear the right shoes! Perhaps you could try those trainers that light up next time, they ought to attract even more moths!
I know these are common, but I rather like the patterns when you get close enough to see them - a Garden Grass-veneer
And an unmistakable Cinnabar
Both from Lunt Meadows when it was sunny on Sunday
