Garden Moths – Diary 04 April

L Red Sword-grass

The images below of moths and butterflies found in April, are reproduced from the monthly diary section of our DVD-ROM, released in November 2008. Titled “In A Different Light – A Garden’s Moths and Butterflies …. A Photographic Diary”, all the images are copyrighted to us. Please contact us if you’re interested in purchasing a copy of the DVD-ROM, including a separate CD of the Dawn Chorus in the garden, for £10 plus P&P. There is much more information, and the images are of a much higher quality than those uploaded to the blog below, on the DVD-ROM. There is more information and reviews of the DVD-ROM on the ‘parent’ Garden Moths page.

The moths are arranged in 4 size groupings from simple Large, Medium, Small, Tiny. The landscape, plant and ‘Moth-Art’ images indicate a size change.
