Macros through the macro

A few common macros photographed over the last few days. Riband Wave Idaea aversata, Least Carpets Idaea rusticata and Common Emeralds Hemithea aestivaria are especially common at the moment. Finally chosen a moth trap that will also enable me to survey moths at the moor as well as in the forest interior at my second patch, REGUA, in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest in October.

The Uncertain Hoplodrina alsines or The Rustic Hoplodrina blanda, 13 July 2013. Until (and if) I get better at separating these two
species, I'll lump 'em together. Many thanks to Les Hill (@dorsetmoths) for advice on this difficult species pair.
