Here’s a close up shot of what I think is a Small Magpie Moth drying out its wings after recently emerging. Taken on a compact camera, with reasonable results. Below it is the earlier shot of it with wings still somewhat furled and slowly opening out, which is photographically rather poorer having not had any exposure compensation set.
