So, another brownish moth, I hear you thinking. Well, pity the poor thing will you? You're clearly not the first to think that this is a slightly dull creature as it hasn't even really got a name of its own. It's called the Burnet Companion because its often found in the same location as the Burnet Moths. I like to think it was named in the days when certain ladies had paid companions but I don't expect it's anything as romantic as that. I must admit when I first came across it in the grass I thought it was a Skipper butterfly...and I will get round to showing you one of those too soon. Canon EOS 5D
