DescriptionTired on a windy day. This moth is about 10mm across, and in the wind was being thrown all over the place. When it settled it hung on for a few minutes, enough for it to recover, and long enough for me to grab this before lifting off and being blown into the long grass, not to be seen again. However, a new species for me. A while since I have been able to say that, despite at one time taking pride on seeing something new most if not every trip out.
