Angle Shades moth

Yet another moth that I’d never seen before, though it’s quite common. The camouflage is effective against a background of dead leaves, but on a green vine leaf you could see it miles away!

  1. I am very impressed by all your pictures, but especially by the ones of moths and spiders. The moths are so hard to find and so very pretty with their suble colours.

  2. No idea why the picture is “currently unavailable” – the Flickr link still works.
