Some summer images

Last night, I attended the AGM of the Llanelli Naturalists, after which Richard Pryce gave a very interesting talk on various field meetings and botanical highlights of the 2014 season. Among the mostly plant photos was a sprinkling of moths shots.
They were taken at two locations where the Llanelli Naturalists held field meetings in 2014 - Allt Nant y Ci, Saron SN610124 (near Ammanford, on 12th July), and a lovely, unimproved, species-rich farm in north Carmarthenshire - at Bryn-arau-gleision SN639434, when Richard visited on 14th July.

              Above: at Allt Nant y Ci, near Saron. Photo: RD Pryce. Is this Platyptilia pallidactyla?

The above photographs make you think of summer - and look forward to the forthcoming season.


  1. I think it's pallidactyla rather than a washed-out isodactylus as it looks good and fresh.
