The Winter Moth
A quite common moth across the UK, it can be seen in late Autumn through to February. They have evolved to come out in winter, when there are fewer predators. Male moths have dark cross bands on their wings, females are virtually wingless, and crawl up tree-trunks to await the arrival of males. The colouring, though delicate and muted, is beautiful and it shimmers in the moonlight.
