The Burnet Companion

Yes well, I have spent most of today taking more pictures of the Six-spot Burnet and I will show you some in a bit.

In the company of all of those Burnet Moths I found this little beauty and it gets it’s name from the fact that it is usually found in the company of Burnet Moths.

They share the same larval food plant, Bird’s-foot Trefoil although this moth will lay eggs on Clover as well. They are both day flying moths and this one has beautiful green eyes.

    1. Thank you Marco and thanks for your continued support and encouragement 🙂 I have just been exploring your blog and that is great photography. There was one picture that I particularly liked and I don’t think that I left a comment, a little Dipper taken back in 2011, I really like those birds. Brilliant work Marco 🙂
