What a beauty...

Took delivery yesterday of the twin 30W actinic set up from ALS to use as interchangeable with the existing MV electrics on the Robinson trap and gave the light a run out last night. All in all a good result including one new for year that I'd been anticipating for a few days - Oak Beauty. Always a treat and much loved by the kids (keeps them going until the hawkmoth season!)...

Couldn't resist some of these pics: In this one it's like an old Vulcan bomber with two wingmen Oak Beauty and 2 Clouded Drab And if anyone has any ideas as to what the Clouded Drab said to the Oak Beauty... What did the Oak Beauty say to the Clouded Drab


  1. You`re right, David. Oak Beauties are one smart species.

    1. Cheers Dean. Had another last night, just need a Pine Beauty now...
