Red Twin-spot Carpet

With a promise of frost later in the week we thought we had better trap in the garden while the going was good.
A ladder was needed to pot some of the pugs on the wall, but binoculars were needed for the Garden Carpet and Great Prominent further up.  Good fun this mothing business!!
New for the garden this year were Muslin Moth, Lsr Swallow Prominent, Red Twin-spot Carpet and the afore mentioned Garden Carpet.
Some photos below show the features on the underside of Red Twin-spot which are more brightly coloured orange/brown on the tip of the forewing than the Dark-barred Twin-spot.  And a Muslin Moth on my pencil...just because I like them!
