Creigiau - 21 May

A sunny afternoon and I was really surprised to see Micropterix calthella on buttercups in the garden. Seeing them all over the place at the moment, but never before seen in the garden.

Also saw this little beastie soaking up the sunshine on one of the shrubs. The images were 5 minutes apart so I'm thinking it may be the same individual but, once again, I have no idea what it is. The second image has been inverted to see it the right way up.


  1. Thanks Chris. Certainly looks like images found on-line and in your book. Also looks as though both images are of the same moth. A new moth for me ...
    I'll record as this and see what Dave thinks.
