Silver Y Autographa gamma, Pale Form.

A Silver Y today. Sadly, it's been badly burned by an MV lamp. I get so many moths here damaged like that. I wish that some people who were interested in moths would put a shield around the lamp. You wouldn't want to put your finger on it. Actually, I wish it was a legal requirement that all moth traps had to have a guard round the bulb. Oh well, I can dream.

Some of these photos were taken with flash, others with available sunlight.

One of the worst examples 
of damage I've seen.
