Looks like you`ve been inundated with em, Stewart. Give it another week or so and there`ll be that many, you`ll not know which way to turn ;-) Good fun though, isn`t it ?

I have been enjoying your moths for some time and what a grand selection you have shown us.
Some stunning and some strange. Occasionally you have to sit and wonder what you are looking at.
Can i thank you for sharing them and keep them coming.
One you have one particular moth that you want to see in your trap?

Dean - Its fantastic just like starting birding all over again. Except more tiring ;)

John - Cheers, as for 'hoped fors' well there are too many really. I would like one of the 'kittens' or a Puss Moth or a Pale Tussock or....

Really is beautiful. In fact, Stewart, my trap arrived today and I wasn't going to use it tonight, but I'm off to put it out now!
