Old Lady sitting in a goldfish bowl! (Mormo maura)

Surprise visitor to the garage this morning, and a first timer sighting for me! Its sitting inside a goldfish bowl vase, and its photographed through the bowl itself, I am quite pleased with the outcome! Been left to depart tonight when safe to do so, but if it touches my homebrew, the cats will be released!!

Oh no!! You must have mis-identified it Ken.... it doesn't look anything like me at all!!!;)

You really have got a great picture of him through the glass and a moth I've never heard of before.

Hope your wine stays safe lad.

Oh Delia, I have you down as a Lime-hawk Hawkmoth! As for the brew, it aint wine lassie, its 10 gallons of Yorkshire strong brown!

What a lovely find for you, Ken, and a great image.
