    Yes BB, all these moths have their habitat. But I wouldn't see much of them if I didn't set a moth trap every month through the summer.

    Fairy, book says 'more thinly distributed in Scotland but extending its range' so you may see one soonimage

    Cheers nut! Might be able to cope with one of those since it's quite butterfly-ish....imageimage

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    They're nice moths for people that are a bit wary. They sit on your finger and don't flap about. image
