(and sometimes the beast!)




Spotted this moth on my usual walk the other morning and he reminded me of similar moths we used to get in Darwin. They fascinated me and I was always trying to get photos of them but the equipment I had back then wouldn't do the job.  I think it left me with a lifelong interest in bugs and so forth which is why, I guess, this blog seems to have more insects than flowers of late.  I searched for a while to see if I could find a name for this specimen but must not have been looking in the right places.  I shall call him Cecil Laceywing-Green III.
