Spot the moth & bloke joke

Nothing doing over the last couple of days - too busy for one reason or another. Traps are back out tonight, tomorrow will be the home leg of NMN 2009, and Saturday sees us heading south-east for a mothing blitz on Kent. Hopefully that sea parrot will show up again whilst I'm down there. I lieu of anything new, here's a shot of a moth set against a suitable background to show its cryptic side. I usually try to photograph moths so you can see them for obvious reasons, but nice occasionally to show them against something that hides them a bit. Marbled Green- Guineaford, Devon July 2006 Bloke comes home late one night after a beery session with his mates. Badly hungover in the morning, he shambles downstairs to find his wife in the kitchen with one of his socks in a frying pan. Puzzled, he asks 'what on earth are you doing?' His wife replies 'I'm doing what you asked me to do last night when you came in!' In his confused state, he thinks to himself 'I can't remember asking her to cook my sock' .......

Oh you guys. If I was going to use that kind of material I think I'd have given up by now.
