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.

Buff Footman Moth – Eilema depressa
Silver Y Moth (brown colour form) – Autographa gamma
Scarlet Tiger Moths (mating) – Callimorpha dominula

I like to take photos and write words ...


  1. I have seen my first scarlet tiger moths this week and the red under their wings is beautiful. I have also seen a huge privet hawk moth this week too. They are amazing. Lovely shots! 😀
