Last Night in Hebden Bridge

Epiritta sp 3

Feathered Thorn (Female) 1

The thorn was spotted this morning floundering in the canal. I rescued it with a very long stick and took this pic after it had dried out. Nice to have both the male (take note of his magnificent feathered antanae) and female on consecutive nights.

I like these moths. As a kid I once reared one from a caterpillar that had been (audibly!) munching on the privet hedge in the back garden.
