One of my favourite moths even though they are a bit of a pest, the Box Tree moth.

A bit of a pest is an understatement from what I hear. Nice photo, have you seen the Melanic ones? I saw lots last year but none so far this year.
Another very nice shot of this attractive moth. I've not seen one round here (Gloucester)
I am sure that they will be there in a few years.

No I havent but not had the trap out much as I have just recently moved house. I spotted this one on some ivy during the day.
