Brick or Flounced Chestnut or what?




caught this one on 1st October and I just cannot make my mind up what it is, any suggestions?

also this worn carpet on the same date



I take my photo's in RAW format and JPEG, does anyone know how to keep the quality on JPEG's, I know it's not going to be as good as RAW but it does seem to loose a lot of quality, any ideas

Martyn, i reckon the first one is a Scarce Bordered Straw.
I`ll leave the Carpet to someone else.

Yep, Flounced Chestnut, a lovely moth. Only ever seen one in ancient woodland it is an uncommon moth indeed.

Ps. Carpet can only be a late Devon Carpet, well done! Water Carpet and Small Phoenix are waaaay past their flight-times
