I dont know if this is a moth or not as I cant find it in my books or online. I have posted in a forum for an ID but if anyone knows on here then feel free to let me know.

Anyway, these were in the garden yesterday (and saw some this evening). They are around trees and flit/dance up and down when the sun shines (not much flitting going on there then lol).

Strange colour, its neither black nor gold and has something white underneath when it flits about. Not brilliant pics as it was breezy.

Great shot!
It looks like the one that was flying around the room the day I was choosing a screen name!

Thanks everyone.

Yes, its definitely a moth - ID'd as one of the longhorn moths called
Adela reaumurella - female.

The males are much more showy with quite long antenna but I couldnt get to them as they were over the trees. Not sure how long these live for but if they are still around at the weekend I would love to find some lower down.

Great shots Linda, a moth.

I was thinking perhaps it was Adela reaumurella but I don't think the antenna look long enough.

Thanks Lester. Its because its a female. We have quite a few around the garden at the moment and I can see the males clearly have much longer antenna and are a bit more attractive/showy.

Hopefully I can find a male at the weekend (if the forthcoming downpours doesnt drown them all lol).

Ah well spotted Linda, I must have only come across males.
Those boys are just show-offs. :)

Crossing everything for this weekend. We managed to jump the wrong way every day last weekend.

Boys are always show-offs arent they lol.

Yes, forecast looks good for this weekend so am hoping to maybe go out on Sunday on the hunt for my first DFs of the year.
