Hiding in plain sight.


Hiding in plain sight.

This is a Pine beauty moth and it took me ages to spot it. Toria's close up photo.
Such a pretty one. First one in our garden this year, I think it was 3 weeks ago.

She'd caught it her moth trap and popped it on the pine for its photo shoot. It was me that was invited to find it.

Yes it stayed there for 8 hours, avoiding predatory eyes before flying off into the trees.
