Dusk over moorland at the Lizard
trap light at dusk
Whilst wandering between the traps a Tawny Owl was also heard calling in the coppice and a pipistrelle sp. flew ahead of us.
On our second check of the traps we were nothing short of thrilled to find an absolutely stunning female EMPEROR MOTH glare up at us! We studied it for some time and finally concluded that it was indeed an absolute stunner!!!
Emperor Moth!!! What a beauty!
Me and the Emperor
...and a pug sp.
