This is cheating slightly, but there wasn't much time for moths yesterday as ma mere et moi skedaddled from Paris to near-Calais via this place (above). Leeds, is it? Or Darlington? Neither, although it is jumellee avec Darlington in the twin towns scheme. It's Amiens, a redbrick wonder which reminded me of home. It shared a sense of unexpected wonders and pleasures with Leeds too. Prime among them are Les Hortillonages, allotments accessible only by boat along small canals - a visit which I recommend absolument. I'll add a weblink when I have more time.
Plenty of butterflies flitted about - Whites mostly, which was not surprising considering the vast amounts of home-grown salad and veg. Dragonflies also. But given that this is supposed to be about moths, I've delved into my unused photobag to bring you this tiny Tortrix micro which I didn't feature at the time (late July). Think in terms of half a jellybean. I'll track down its name but must now go and have petit dejeuner, et ensuite, Le Tunel.
