Day 10! A third of the way through! Today we’re celebrating Moth Night so I thought I’d share a few mothy facts before I got started!
- There are more than 2000 species of moths in Britian
- Moths have really cute furry antennae
- Moths will fly at a constant angle to a light bulb. Although they will go straight if steering by the moon!
Colin doesn’t have an adventure to share today but hopefully he’ll delight you in a day or two and I’ve only got a short post for you today!
Today is Moth Night! So I set up a sheet in the garden, shone a garden light and a torch at it and waited. High tech moth-ing here!
Sadly not much came to visit at all. Maybe they ended up in a bat’s stomach, maybe today just wasn’t a good day for moths. Who knows. This little fellow did come to investigate though!
I also found this little one in the bathroom:
Sadly not the most exciting moth adventure, hopefully I’ll see more another time! I took a few shots of some flowers in the garden while there was still some light.
Crisp, white sheet, bright light
Irresistable for moths?
Only one tonight.
