I arrived home from twitching the short-toed lark yesterday morning to open the moth trap which I'd run for a mere 1.5 hours overnight before the downpour. A single lime hawkmoth was inside. What a cracker!

The image embedded in the blog entry is probably 1.5x life size. Try double-clicking the image. It should open in a new window. You'll get all the detail of the moth's 'furry' abdomen and wing scales. I took it with the Coolpix 7900 on a macro setting.
