30 Days Wild Pan-species Challenge: Day 6

I put the moth trap out last night, and despite the appalling weather I got this lifer:

It even cleared up to allow me to check the trap without getting rained on!

This was my first kitten moth, and a group which I’ve wanted to see for a while, being common and very pretty with their yellow-edged dark markings on a silky white background. They’re called kittens due to their fluffy bodies and legs!
