Two beautiful moths alongside the John Muir Walkway near Musselburgh today, both of which were happy to pose for the camera! This is a six spot burnet moth, a species which I have seen several times and sometimes in number. It is beautifully irridescent and has magnificent antennae! Corrected to state: in fact if you look carefully this is 'missing a spot' and is therefore a narrow bordered 5 spot burnet moth!
Edinburgh Natural History Society Facebook Group for identifying this for me).
Fabulous, the burnets have, as you have seen, been very numerous by my work. Antler moth is new to me however!
Hello, the first moth is pretty. The Merganser family is a great sighting. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!
I would have never thought they were moths. They are gorgeous! :-)
Greetings from London.
That is a good number of survivors! And a beautiful moth. Our are quite drab.
Quite a stunning moth - ours are so drab. Good to see so many survivors - cute bunch.
Very nice, well photographed!
We don't have that moth here, as far as I can see. It really stands out.
