Old Lady

Spent an interesting evening at Cuckoo's Hollow, Werrington, hoping to attract Old Ladies with Stone's Patented Wine Rags.

Yes, it sounds strange, but the Old Lady we attracted with bits of cloth soaked in a mixture of rum, red wine and sugar was a moth, Mormo maura. It's a pretty spectacular, large species - read more about it here at UK Moths.
