Two new moths this week

Light Emerald Moth This week I have found 2 very pretty moths that I have not seen before, both emeralds.

They are attracted to the windows when the light is on and the curtains open. The Light Emerald has a very distinctive shape and colour and has a tiny red dot on the tip of each wing.

Large Emerald MothThe Large Emerald was very bright green. I believe that the colour fades very quickly so I was lucky see to both of them while they were so colourful.
