Here's a Tip

This was the first really good insect day this summer; properly warm and calm. Although it's getting late in the season even for these latest flying clearwings, it's not unusual for emergence to be delayed in poor summers. So I took a 'for' pheromone lure down to The Boardwalks this lunchtime and was rewarded with up to three moths buzzing it. They rarely settle in view for long so have to make do with these flight shots.
