A closer look at Moths....

The Moths event over the weekend was a winner! It was a real treat to see live moths up close - our magnifying pots helped to highlight the delicate markings so as to identify them correctly. As someone said in a recent comment on Allan's insect photos - there's a lot more to Cromwell Bottom than birds!
I'm sure there'll be some beautiful photos posted in the next few days, so mine are just to record the interesting day we had.
A huge thanks to the organisers as usual -

Checking ID - the experts at work under a shady parasol.......

A Swallowtail - absolutely beautiful!

Lots of swallowtails fluttering around at night at the moment!
