Angle Shades

On Sunday evening as I went into our kitchen I disturbed a moth - it surprised me by flying repeatedly at my head and face before landing on the surface nearby. If it had been in conversation with other visitors to our house it would know that being photographed is obligatory. It has evolved to look like a leaf and folds its wings along its body. A friendly looking moth - Angle Shades. Some other portraits can be found here.
