I also try to include helpful features in the background, such as other dozing insects, my pyjamas or, fairly frequently, my fingers and thumbs. Today's top picture, for example, shows that tiny dagger of a moth, Catoptria pinella (if I am not mistaken) with my thumb lurking behind. A little distant, I know, but it gives you a notion.
Feeling specially helpful, I've then combined the picture above of lovely Acleris forsskaleana in a typical eggbox folding-groove (typical to us eggbox savants, that is), with one below taken from a distance and showing the whole box. Isn't he or she minute?
And so to some other visitors - ID-ed like yesterday's by captions which one and all are invited to check, confirm or put right.
Now for one or two curious recent sights in the trap. First, a wasp briefly paid court to a lovely Marbled Green but a love match was not to be.
Then a socking great micro - one of the Crambyds? - appeared to have similar ambitions towards an Elephant Hawk:
And finally, here's an unexpected guest: a Meadow Brown butterfly which got muddled up between day and night. Note, for those who often ask the differences between moths and butterflies, here is one: butterflies always hold their wings like this, folded vertically above their bodies. A few moths do the same, but most prefer the flat-n-folded-back look. Update: check out the very interesting points made on some of the above in Comments.
