Fabulous flight display by these longhorn moths at Drurdge. I wonder how many swatted away the pesky bugs as they visited the hide, not realising their beauty?

Nettle Weevil

I waited patiently for them to land so I could photograph them, they weren't supposed to land on me. No telescope required.
