Strongman of the moth world...
Following from Mel`s comments about cockchafers clinging to her fingers, we are all familiar with the similar antics of poplar hawk-moths doing the same. They should be re-named `Clingers`!
Above: this is `Hercules` (Carmarthenshire`s entrant for the Moth Olympics), training at 5.30am this morning at a secret location near Llanelli, and showing how to hold an egg carton below while another is raised above him. Apologies for the blurry photo (one hand was holding the upper carton and the other taking the photo).
I`ll try to post last night`s (Saturday) catches sometime tomorrow.
