Dusky but delicate

Back home; and here's an example of the grey/brown phenomenon I chat about below. I think this is a Dusky Brocade but there are a number of contenders for moths like this, including one which is appropriately called the Confused Moth. You have to have patience. But the patterns on the wings are delicate and lovely, and as I think you can see from my pic, form excellent camouflage. You need this if you are a moth.

I like the idea of a confused moth! I think I would be one of those were I a moth. The photos are excellent by the way, even if it did take me a few minutes to work out where the moth was in this pic!
