Stainland 27th September 2017 (Second Post)

A surprise for me tonight. At 8:30 pm our cat Ruskin wanted to go out. It was raining hard, he decided to sit in the the hall and glower at it. I spotted something odd on the washing line. It was a moth hanging upside down, sheltering under the stone ledge over our door. I had to use Anne's pocket compact. Stupidly, I'd run both power packs in my macro camera down. The results are not too bad considering I had to use digital zoom to get the photos, (shock, horror).

It turned out to be a Barred Sallow, only the second one I've ever seen.


 Barred Sallow.

Thank you both. It's a tribute to modern digital cameras that a pocket camera is capable of such good results. My fist good digital camera gave terrible results using digital zoom. It became something you never used, and now...
