Ok, so technically it isnt a ton and a half - its five short - but basically its a ton and a half. Having had a look at the leader board I think we should do some drugs testing - there may be a little doping going on in the 300+ club. The fact that Les is tickling 400 is truly wonderful! What is possible in a year? 500, 1000, more?

Anyhows, here is some sweet photos from this last batch. Happy mothing!

Privet (chuffing awesome) Hawkmoth
Buff Tip
Large Emerald - total camouflage! 
Buff Ermine - looking particularly awesome 
Orthopygia glaucinalis - was particularly chuffed with this one. Very smart mothage!
