A nice set of pictures. The moth is interesting. With all that rain; do you have snails and slugs there that are pretty enough to photograph?

Thanks Pants and Steve.Appreciate the kind comments.

Steve, there are a few species of Snail that are quite nice to photograph, but the slugs aren`t too attractive.....either huge black ones or small grey ones. Funnily enough though, after all the rain we`ve had this last week I didnt see that many of either today.
The moth was the first of that species I`ve seen in the area where i was today, despite finding numerous pupae and caterpillars of them in the past few weeks.Theyre a good species to photograph it seems, as theyre very sluggish and allow you to get very close. Wish the butterflies were more approachable though, couldnt get within 6ft of one today

Beautiful shots.As usual details are amazing.Most of the times I do recommend to all my friend to do vist this site and mention few names whose pictures are on "must see list".You are one of them.
If they don't see I send them the link.If they still don't see and I catch them by neck and bring them my home and make them see.
( They are sick of me
