Many of the images in this gallery are moths I've seen in my garden. I use a MV Robinson trap and try to put it out once a week if weather conditions are OK. Rather than photograph the moths on egg boxes (where they shelter when in the trap) I usually place them on a more photogenic background. Some disappear at this point...

If the moth wasn't spotted in my garden, there should be a location given in the photo description.
