The unmistakable Scorched Wing Plagodis dolabararia made an appearance and was a welcome addition to the disappointingly small gathering of Powdered Quakers and Hebrew Characters. Apparently the female Scorched Wing is hardly ever seen so we’ll have to be content with the male and its characteristic curl of the abdomen. It is a beautiful moth that visits these gardens thanks to the stand of ash and sycamore in the quarry.

Let’s see what tonight will bring.
