Plumed Moth

This very tiny moth is a plumed moth (Pterophoridae sp.), and for once (I think), I do know which one it is: Megalorhipida leucodactylus. Don't ask me how to pronounce it - it's a tongue twister. They have been described as micro-moths, and that would be about right - he is very small indeed.

I would never have noticed him, but caught him fluttutering into the shade. It's a bit warm outside today, summer is definitely coming.

Thank you all so much for the hearts and stars, and for sending my Blue Banded Bee to the front Spotlight page - where he has been sitting all day. He is my highest ranking Blip - so thanks again for falling in love with him.
