No outing with John H is wasted. Convivial company is always rewarding. The rest of the animal kingdom stayed hidden away from us. I have only once decent moth shot to offer and a shot or two of the small cascade.
This moth is common as muck but quite well marked nonetheless. Cirrhochrista fumipalpis is the name. Hiding is the game. Here are 2 small falls. I don’t like the stick projecting out on the upper frame but it is what it is.
This one is better in my view. The circular polariser made a huge difference, taking all the glare off the greenery.
I survived the short hike and the weather behaved itself. So a modest success was the verdict.
