Garden Moths – Diary 08 August

L Swallow-tailed Moth (2)

The images below of moths and butterflies found in August, are reproduced from the 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 our Garden for £10 plus P&P. There is much more information, and the images are of a much higher quality than the ones uploaded to the blog, on the DVD-ROM. There is additional information and reviews of the DVD-ROM on the Garden Moths ‘parent’ page, at the top of the home page.

The moths and butterflies are arranged in 4 size groupings – Large, Medium, Small, Tiny in each month, and the landscape, flower and ‘Moth Art’ images indicate a change of size category:

Thanks for reading. And do browse around the rest of the Blog Pages….

Our garden at Gelli Uchaf opens most of the year, when we’re around, by appointment, for charity under the National Garden Scheme. Please see the Garden Overview page for visiting details, or by clicking here. 

This blog, our home and garden are powered by our own home generated electricity. When this is insufficient we are backed up by the supply and resources of Good Energy.

    • Hello Robin,
      Thanks for the really nice comment, and I’m glad that you’ve been inspired to have a look – this was really why I ended up putting this project on – line, I’ve had such a lot of fun over the years discovering what amazing things are out there, but hidden to the casual or uninformed observer.
      It does indeed seem to be turning into a bumper butterfly and moth year, which is a welcome relief after recent wash outs!
      Best wishes,
      Julian and Fiona
