This week I'd like to post a couple of pictures of a snout moth. This beast is abundant in Holland this time of the year. Because it's active during the dark,
it is easy to catch while asleep early morning. Whit a wing span of 25 mm it's not big. Despite its not so spectacular appearance, its scales have different colours at different
parts of the body, snow white on top of the head (not in these pics), grey-brown collar and like chocalate flakes on its face between the eyes. The way the antennas are connected with the head made me think of antlers.
The tongue has a remarkable length, slowly curling up when the body dries.
The first 3 pics made with my lomo 6x/0.17 objective, the 4th (leg detail) with my new Mitu 20x/0.42. Both on my Lomo microscope. Feedback welcome, including constructive critsisism Very Happy
