There were a number of these terns endlessly flying by, endlessly diving for fish. Frank Lake - May 6

Hit up Foresters Beach for sunrise this morning. It did not want me there! I got there and all I could hear were huge crashing waves. I was trying to look around for the spots everyone had been capturing but it was too dark. When more light came I realised that all the good spots were being pounded by 5 foot waves. Dammit!! So I tried the best to get a shot but before i even clicked the shutter once I got smashed by a wave. Camera was ok but i was out of there. Walked down a bit onto another rock and got a long exposure but wasn't working. Headed back to the smaller rocks and the good stuff was starting. Good thing it lasted a while Which gave me time to grab a few different shots. Few rays about and a bit of colour which was good. From this mornings experience I am not happy with Foresters but I will be going back there in the near future to see if it will be nice to me.

The Forester : Adscita statices

In the Foret de St Sever

Captured at Splinter Ridge F&WA Madison Indiana.

Delleboersterheide, The Netherlands

A caterpillar of a forester moth, genus Alypia. Austin, Texas, April 21, 2018.

"Very few moths can compare with the beautiful day-flying Eight Spotted Forester (Alypia octomaculata). They are relatively small with only a 1 1/2 inch wingspan, but what they lack in size they more than make up for in eye appeal." F/20, .6 sec, ISO 500, 5D M2, Sigma 150mm f/2.8 + 1.4x extender & cloudy @ 9:18am

Such stunning moths!

After the dive has ended, after the fish was missed, he bounces up and thrust himself airborne

Adscita species, most likely A.statices due to the absence of rock rose in the area for A.geryon larvae and plenty of sorrel for A.statices to feed upon.

The Dean Forest Railway is a 4.25-mile (6.8 km) long heritage railway that runs between Lydney and Parkend in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire.

A Forester moth (Adscita statices) at Barbury Castle Ironage hillfort.

"One of the commonest of the day-flying moths this species is recognisable due to its iridescent green colouration. The larvae feed on sorrel. The Cistus forester is smaller and less common but both are seen at Barbury Castle."

W last saw one of these on Islay off the west coast of Scotland.

 

Bashful. Shot during overcast skies along our beautiful coast of California.

In Northern Ireland, Forester moths have a very limited distribution, with only 1 site known to have a population hanging on. The site is a tiny boggy glade located in the middle of a large floating forest - which used to be a shallow lake some couple of hundred years ago. Time your visit right, and among the humming of abundant other insects, you could find these tiny little green gems hopping from flower to flower of their favourite nectar-plant; Marsh Cinquefoil.

The loco entered service in May 1961 as D100 and ran on British Rail until December 1985.

 

It is now owned by the Pioneer Diesel Locomotive Group

More from Battlesbridge, Essex.

We think these were Adscita statices rather than A. geryon (cistus forester) but its hard to be certain.

Just love these beautiful moths! Was nice that this one landed on an orchid too! :-)

Euphaedra medon

 

Before I took this shot, I really wished that the wisp of grass over the butterfly was not there.‎ The butterfly had been having a rest in the garden one sunny day. It left its original position where it had been disturbed for this space under the hedge. I could hardly see a way to remove the blemish without losing the subject.

 

Butterflies! They're not the perfect models but they're just beautiful the way they are. Thing is that the pain behind every photo is easily forgotten once one gets to appreciate the charm in every butterfly. Memories of the travails wears off in favour of the delightful array of colours that makes the butterflies to want to be seen in photos as often as possible :-)
