Sunset 10 September 2016

The setting sun set fire to the clouds and chased the wet grey day away.


Emerald moth

emerald moth - wNot a great pic (a quick snap with my phone when I was very, very tired), but it records my delighted sighting of a very beautiful creature. I’d like to think that it’s a Sussex Emerald moth, but it’s probably just a Common one.


I found out on Halloween that it’s not easy taking pictures of fireworks with a handheld point and shoot camera even when you discover the “firework” setting. Still, given the technical difficulties, I’m pleased enough with this image to publish it as my Guy Fawkes Night post. I’ll try again tonight if anyone lets off fireworks near enough to my house – I need a lot more practise!
