Small but perfectly formed

Just a little entry today for just a little moth. It's easy to overlook the real tinies, when sorting through the eggboxes, and I only just noticed this tortrix micro moth while putting the trap away. You do a final check everywhere, just to make sure that nothing is going to have spend a day as well as a night trapped inside. Micro-moths are for retirement. A lot of people tend to specialise in the pug moths when the time comes to out on slippers and puff a pipe; but these are much more curiously coloured, albeit so small. I hope my eyesight bears up...
