Rolled up crispy leaves

Away from seals and birds we are still running the moth trap and catching up to 9 of these beautiful moths. This is the angle shades moth and has these beautifully marked rolled wings that make it invisible amongst all of the dying back vegetation on the island. These adult moths are probably busy mating and egg laying at the monent as their second generation of the year caterpillers over-winter and then pupate and hatch out as adults in the spring. I just can't help photographing them at the moment.
