Evening in the garden

Late yesterday evening (26/6), I went to garden to water some pot plants and Argolamprotes micella landed on my upper leg! Stupidly, I did not have a container in my pocket (ALWAYS carry a container!) so I tried, very carefully and slowly, walking back to the nearby kitchen (c 20 ft away) to fetch one. If someone could have seen my curious walking gait, they would have imagined I was doing a comedy sketch.
Unfortunately, a sudden gust of wind prompted the moth into flight and I lost it in the vegetation. Going around the garden (this time with a container) I could not relocate it or any others, though I did flush a good dozen diamond-back moths.
My garden traps were out last night and it was worthwhile, with at least one `goodie`.
