Moth phobics will have to acknowledge objectively that this is a magnificent creature - once again spotted by Dick Budden in his patch near the Nadder. Andrew Graham commented, 'It's a Scarlet tiger moth. There are quite a few of them around at present. There are generally one or two fluttering around in my garden of a sunny evening at the moment. Splendid beasts though.
'There are lots of Hawk Moths about at night as well.'
So, for moth phobics like myself, keep those windows closed till you've turned the lights off!
The pages now display photos of fungi taken by members. This one by Andrew Carter - Trametes versicolour.
Please do not eat any of them.
If it's not me, Elizabeth Forbes, website editor (keen but ignorant), I'll say so.
