The wonderful world of micro-moths.  The frequently unseen and just as frequently unspoken of majority contingent of the UK Lepidoptera fauna.  So often as beautiful as any butterfly or hawk-moth…… just smaller.

They have been an ongoing revelation for me.  With the combination of the excellent ‘Field Guide to Micromoths of Great Britain and Ireland’ and a half decent digital camera my entomological life changed.

Here you will find pictures of some of those that have passed across my camera lens.  Comments and corrections welcome.
