Arch Nuisance


Photo Information
The Box Tree Moth (Cydalima Perspectalis). You wont see this one in the reference books yet. It's caterpillars cause very serious damage to Box hedges. Arrived from 'Asia' a few years ago and has spread alarmingly - mainly in the south east at the moment. RHS members can find out more...

A very attractive moth though - much creamier in colour than my flash photo shows.

K5 II & Pentax-F 100 macro. (Not Sigma). Better viewed large!

Yes, very pretty---though destructive.

Nuisance or not, it's a very good photo.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
