I don't have a moth trap but I do have a camera and I will post here photos of moths taken throughout the year, starting with 2017. All photographs were taken indoors, unless otherwise stated.

1. The Passenger (Dysgonia algira).
2. Meal Moths (Pyralis farinalis), copulating.
3. Meal Moth (Pyralis farinalis) male, with abdomen raised.
4. Small Blood-vein (Scopula imitaria)

Superb photos Chris and the Passenger is a stunning species. It would get a few hearts fluttering if one of those turned up in a UK moth trap.

Thanks, everyone, for your kind comments. More pics to follow.

Dave, it was the first time that I had knowingly come across the Passenger in the 13 years that I have been living in this area. I had to do quite a bit of online research to find it!
