UK MACRO MOTHS

A checklist of all the macro-moths illustrated on this site is given here

I used a Canon EOS 7D until May 2017, then all pictures were taken with a Canon 5D MkIV.   Lenses - until March 2019 I used a Sigma 150mm f2.8 APO MACRO DG HSM lens, after that I switched to a Sigma 180mm f3.5 APO MACRO DG HSM lens for all moth pictures.

If no specific location is given beneath the picture, then the moth was captured in an MV trap in my garden in Disley, Cheshire.   Other locations are given beneath specific pictures.   Moths photographed in Lyme Park, Cheshire were trapped in collaboration with Claire Disley, Sheila Coverdale, Nigel Earp, Jude Dawson, Gail Horn and other Lyme volunteers.   Almost all images are of moths on the UK list, though some of the immigrant species were captured and photographed outside the UK.   After photographing, all moths were released into dense herbeage.
