Moths, Moths And More Moths

how to buy ivermectin in south africa Al Musayyib The DIY moth trap has been running most nights over the last moth so I thought I ought to show some of the variety I have caught (and eventually ID’d!)

https://seamaidcleaningservices.com/949-dpt41024-19-namoro.html This one is a Vestal. It is an uncommon migrant to the area and amazingly the County Recorder contacted me about it (I had put it on iSpot) as he wanted to include it in the monthly newsletter. Not bad for my first month!

I love the diversity of the moths, so many shapes, colours and sizes. The names are also pretty superb, harking back to a bygone era. I have some more moths to show but I think this is enough for now and some of them deserve there own post.
