Some things I find on dog walks.

I've searched through my reference books but, as yet, have been unable to identify this little butterfly (or is it a moth?). The photograph is not the clearest and it has been magnified but the wing patterns can be seen fairly clearly. Can anyone help?


To me, this close-up of the ripening pods on the rape crop signifies anger with the tangled mass of heads.


I had just re-leashed the 3 dogs on approaching the village when I came upon 2 baby rabbits sitting on the track. Luckily,the dogs hadn't spotted them but one shot off into the rape crop. However, this one was more curious. I don't think dogs and wildlife photography are a good mix!

I love these new green larch cones. They remind me of wax models, (or soap, funnily enough).

I found one called the "Scorched Carpet Moth" which seemed quite like your photo, Anne
