Mrs Muslin

Things continue at a snail's pace here - literally on Wednesday night (above) but I always find the variations of the Muslin moth interesting, such as the 'eyed' one on the left, below. Muslins were my only visitor that night apart from a lot of Green Carpets and they set me thinking - I have never seen a female one. I am sure someone on this blog will have and I'd be interested to know the circumstances. Apparently they almost always fly by day and rarely come to light. Mind you, knowing me, I might have mistaken one casually for a White Ermine, with their background colouring being white.  Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon
