Moth firsts

With so many opportunities to search for insects during the long daylight hours of this Easter, I haven't really concerned myself with the moth trap. Nightly temperatures have been way down with little cloud cover to block out a bright moon, but last night's forecast looked slightly more promising, and the 60w actinic was set-up in the garden in the hope of something interesting.

The first Buttoned Snout since 2011 was an obvious highlight, but it didn't quite share the same cuteness factor as the garden's first Chocolate-tip, and the first Pale Tussock of the year...
