    Default Burnet Moth

    About to feed on the thistle, then proboscis away!


    I often find the dark bluey/black of these moths are a tad more difficult to get the detail in, but these are not to bad. The adults feed on the nectar of knapweed, thistles and other grassland flowers, and females lay their eggs on the caterpillars' foodplants.
