Something Green, Something New

Warm, humid, still and overcast conditions last night should of brought an absoloute bonanza to the traps. There were a good few moths, but not exactly bulging at the sides or anywhere near the biggest catch of the year. There was a major highlight for me though, another new for the garden macro tick!

Green Arches

Okay it's not the smartest or freshest individual, but they all count. This is the 316th macro and the 676th species for the garden (as it stands, though there are a few pending confirmation, including a worn plain Argyresthia from last night, which may be A. glabratella).

So given that I've started with a noctuid, I'll use that as the excuse/theme for the page-filler shots .....
