Moths May Ninth & Tenth

I had posted one half of this post so if you have a sense of deja vu lay the blame at the door of blogger after their little technical hitch. Though I suspect there are quite a few of us out there who felt a sense of 'thank god it isn't just me that has technical glitches'.

New stuff over the 9th and 10th Cinnabar, Dark Spectacle, Silver Y, Common Swift, Freyer's Pug on 9th and Elephant Hawk-moth and Miller on 10th. Of those only Common Swift is not new for the garden. Dark Spectacle, Freyer's Pug, Miller and Elephant Hawk Moth were all new earliest dates for Northumberland. The kids enjoyed the Elephant Hawk Moth.

The Miller

The Freyer's Pug was identified with much needed help from Stewart Sexton and Tom Tams.

Stunning shots!
Never thought I'd say this, but I think this qualifies as moth porn.

Well finally, after many years of wondering why my grandmother from England (to Nova Scotia) would say..."close the blinds, the Millers are coming"...there actually is a moth known as The Miller.

That Miller is a cracker Alan, I want one...
