2020 SO FAR

The following six species are all new to me this year in what has been a pretty quiet but rewarding few months so far. I've missed the social light trapping events and meeting up with fellow enthusiasts but there's been other ways to keep my interest stimulated. 
I always enjoy photographing things that few others ever get to see so I suppose the two bagworms photos are my highlights: 

Stathmopoda pedella at Park Wood recreation ground July 7th
Cypress Tip Moth netted at dusk in the garden, June 25th
Luffia lapidella (=ferchaultella) female egg laying, cases found at Salterhebble, June 5th
Grey Pug, female gen. det. netted at dusk in the garden, June 20th
Dahlica triquetrella case and eggs about to hatch at North Dean wood, May 12th
Dark Ash Bud Moth at Milner Royd, May 16th
