Moths in the Garden

I discovered by chance today that it is National Moth Week at the moment. This seems to be an event mainly focused in the US but it has spread and there are various events across the globe. This made me think of the other day when I saw a moth I had never seen before! So here is that moth, and a couple of others that I recently spotted in my garden, in celebration of Moth Week.
