Quite a few moths since I last posted, but this turned up in the veggie plot a day or so ago. It's a Convolvulus Hawk Moth Pupa. Took some photos & popped it back somewhere it won't be dug up again (Sorry Wendy)
& a few photos from recent traps, a lovely Oak Beauty
a March Moth
a flightless female of the Dotted Border
That's all for now!

I did think about posting it off to you, but our post is so unreliable. We had 2 Xmas cards in mid January that were posted in early december! Fingers crossed you'll get your own this year.
A few more from the recent traps, a Spring Usher
That'll do, don't want to overload the sytem. I've put these in at 550 width & shrunk the size to around 400kb before hand. They look OK to me.

They look OK to me too Hazel, and enlarge nicely too.
