Moth Trap 84

Didn't check the trap till this evening, what with the general dampness. Good job I did as amongst the usual few shuttles and Heart and Darts I found a new species for me in the form of a Muslin Moth:

Muslin Moth (Diaphora mendica)

There was nice soft light so I took advantage and macrod his head and antennae, I love the complexity the camera can reveal.

I'm starting to like the results I'm getting with the new camera set up.

Life total: 121
