A very green moth!

This moth came in through the kitchen window the other evening and it looks so cool! I think it contrasts really well with the grey floor. Also, it was a good opportunity to play around with the manual focus, which is usually quite difficult with insects because they move around so much! I don’t know anything about moth species, so let me know if you can identify it.

It’s funny how it looks darker in the photo below, presumably because of the lighting.

    I think that is Chloroclysta siterata or a Red Green Carpet Moth. They are relatively common in Autumn.

    P.S. Great blog!

Let me know what you think!
