I've photographed so many Garden Tortrix, I don't even bother anymore, except this is the first time I've seen one with its wings spread. Of the 300 images on the guide, I see that Peter Homann is the only other contributor to have photographed the hindwings


Well, Robert -
There comes a point with some moths when they have to become exhibitionists to be taken seriously.
