Moth up close

A moth found a pair of jeans on the clothes line a convenient resting place and allowed its photo to be taken.

Then decided on a closer look at the camera flew off to settle on the lens the only problem for me was the macro wouldn't focus quite that close, however you do get the underside view and the sight of the unusual spikes on the rear legs. As yet I haven't been able to work out the identity.


  1. Interesting looking moth Ian :) Moths can be tricky to id and I seem to remember you have a lot more species in Australia than we do in UK!!!

  2. Have been away and just getting back to normal at home, so have been off the site for some time. Pleased to get your comment on the moth and I have another to add today.
