Moth Night at Home….

The Highlight had to be a new moth for my list. It also has the longest name for a moth. It was a shame this Lesser Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing had a torn wing. But when I took its photo from the side I had a surprise. I did not realise how nice it looked, with it’s yellow and red line and the green just above the head….
