Old Lady

Was quite pleased to find this imposing dowager yesterday, it should be ideal territory for them down here by the canal - not too often found in traps though so I was lucky. Less welcome is the carnage caused by wasps of late - is this a common problem in light traps I wonder?

nice Moth Old Lady, Andy, I've had them in the shed, on Budlea and at sugar but never in the trap

I've also had wasps attacking Moths, never noticed this before, the wasps seem very small but aggresive
