The Straw Dot - Rivula sericealis

This species belongs to the family Noctuidae but can be seen on the wing day and night. It has a wing span of 20-23 mm and is common in uncultivated dry or damp areas. In Sweden it flies from June-September. Its larva, that overwinters, feeds on various grasses

The Swedish name is ‘Trågspinnarfly’.

This was taken with the camera handheld. It has been cropped and sharpened.

Our move has gone well and it’s now good to get some time over for TN as well!

Hello Ulla.
This is an artistic approach with G9 with the moth diving down to the muted green background. Very good work rendering fine details in the frame.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hello Ulla,
A very small and discreet moth which I never have seen..looking at it from your point of view reminds me of a mask or a face. Well presented fine and natural shot.
I hope too that everything will be fine with your move, I cross my fingers...
Joyeux Noël à vous deux encore une fois
