Species: E. atomaria

The Common Heath (Ematurga atomaria) is a moth of the family Geometridae. The species can be found in Europe and the Near East.Wingspan 22-30 mm.

Inhabiting heaths, moorland and open woodland, this rather variable species flies during the day, sometimes abundantly in sunshine.

It is common throughout Britain, and appears in May and June, sometimes again in August in the south.

The caterpillars, which are equally variable, feed on heather (Calluna), heath (Erica) and clovers (Trifolium spp).

A top-class macro shot of this amazing moth. The chocolate brown contoured-pattern on its wings is marvelous. Thread-like fringe on feathers is also a big attraction.Well done; 10 out of 10. Thanks for sharing,
