Five Spot Burnett Moth

Five Spot Burnett Moth, originally uploaded by Little Brown Job.

The Five Spot Burnett Moths have just started appearing in the meadow. I'm not sure all of them will have made it though, I found that someone had been in and mowed over the weekend. I guess it's a necessary evil to give some of the flowers a better chance against the grasses, a week or too later given the late Spring might have been better though.

Anyway, even withstanding the mowed meadow, there will be thousands of Burnett's buzzing about by the weekend and if the forecast is right, plenty of butterfly and dragonfly action too :-)
