No, nothing supernatural. But things absolutely super natural: moths.
Fans or phobics, I would guess that you've noticed the gallery of fabulous creatures that now grace each of our pages, thanks to Andrew Graham's moth trap.
Sending the latest gallery, Andrew explained:
'To put things in context: I started from scratch with my knowledge of moths when I got my moth trap at the start of lockdown in March '20. Since then, I have identified 250 moths that I have seen in my garden which backs onto fields. The huge majority of these are macro moths and although I have started to try to identify the micro moths, I have so far not been very successful. This year has not been as productive as last year so far as I have only identified 150 or so species in my trap although quite a few of these are new to me. I am sure that there remain plenty more to be identified and added to my list.'
Sometimes, these exquisite creatures are the 'wrong' shape for the page headers, so here are some of the photos I would love to have used but couldn't, or which couldn't display properly.
Just click on each image to enlarge it to rather more than life-size.

The pages now display photos of moths taken by Andrew Graham. This one's the Puss Moth, looks very soft and cuddly.
This blog is updated usually every 2-4 days, depending of course on what's happening, as also other pages independently or linked from blogposts.
If it's not me, Elizabeth Forbes, website editor (keen but ignorant), I'll say so.
