An irregular blog of photos taken by me of insects and other natural history subjects on my travels around Yorkshire, Britain and Europe. Hopefully you'll find them useful in putting a name to your own specimens but always check your identifications with an expert.


Prince of Wales Park, Eldwick, 12/04/09

Lots of Eriocrania subpurpurella flying low around the oaks in the park this morning. The larvae of these small micro moths mine oak leaves but the adults do not feed...their only purpose is to reproduce.
