Two Burnets and a Forester

The grassy cliffs of Sark, in the Channel Islands, are a vital habitat for insects, including a variety of butterflies and moths. When we visited in July, the five-spot burnet moth was much in evidence. Such a striking beast. I also spotted a forester moth, below. Somewhat rarer.

Burnets are not known to be particularly flighty but they were fluttering all around me that afternoon. Perhaps it was the very breezy conditions. I wasn’t able to manage a decent in flight shot. Below is a huge and rather fuzzy crop, but a record of the moment nonetheless.

    • Oh, I haven’t checked. I am such a digital numbskull that I am not sure I have ever even looked at my ‘stats’ – I will go and see what they are immediately 😉

      • Can hardly call you a digital numbskull with the images you produce. I figured out my problem. It was some software that blocks other unwanted stuff which suddenly decided to start blocking my stats and likes.
