A moth you can never tire of

Over the years I must have seen hundreds of Buff-tips, but it is still an absolute pleasure to see one. The opportunity to take a photograph of this 'snapped-off twig' mimic is too hard to resist as well.

The warm weather has certainly seen an increase in moth numbers and diversity at the garden MV, but I still await that 'killer' moth, an individual that gets the adrenaline going. There seem to be a fair few Red-necked Footman appearing in odd places at the moment, so one wandering into the garden would be most welcome.  That's just jinxed that...
