Back at work now, and this rather nice moth showed up on the warehouse wall. It is relatively large, a couple of inches in wingspan, but the first time I tried to get close enough to photograph it, I managed to spook the moth and it flew off. I watched it fluttering lazily around for a while, during which time it looked remarkably butterfly-like, with creamy underwings and brown forewings, maybe like a faded meadow brown. Then it landed again and I got the shot – this is the mallow moth Larentia clavaria. It is a late moth, with only one flying season from September to November – but according to my field guide, it is seldom seen other than at lights, so I consider this a bit of a coup!
