Moths Found on 8 May 2011

Forward to 15 May 2011 moth page, back to 2 May 2011 moth page, to general moths page.

Now we're talking!  A warm and humid day leading to no less than four Lime Hawk Moths in the trap.  Mmmmm.  Aside from a Brimstone Moth that escaped before we could photograph it, and a fleeting glimpse of what might have been a new species in our trap, the others worth photographing included:

Aside from these we are in the Shuttle-shaped Dart and Heart & Dart season, with a good handful of each in the trap, and are starting the Setaceous Hebrew Character and Bright-line Brown-eye season.
