I thought at first that he was selling something at a market stall Tiff.
Chris: I suggest you set up a stall at Cirencester market and sell moths Chad. Then you'd be laughing on the other side of your face..
Oh, how I do remember this activity while at Lisl's one time, Chris. It was a rainy day, so they did all the notations in her garage. I'll never forget it!
Chris: This can be an intriguing thing to do Ginnie. There is so much out there flying around that I never really knew about before..

I remember watching, Lisl going over all the moths and record them in a book... fascinating.
Great shot.
Chris: I am obliged to you Astrid
A lady has stolen Lisl’s hairdo and is standing in for our dear friend who has flown away for hibernation.
Chris: She is her stand in..

What a great and useful hobby. I have just been reading about the Clifden nonpareil moth that was thought to have become extinct 50 years ago https://www.independent.co.uk/environment/moth-extinct-clifden-nonpareil-50-years-reconalising-a9121226.html

I wonder whether this group has had sightings.
Chris: Oh thank you Anne! When I see Lisl again I will ask her
seriously involved in their hobby
Chris: There were thousands of moths to identify that day..
I would think this is a really interesting thing to do.
Chris: There are so many varieties to identify, many of them look brown and identical
Surement des conseils très interessants ..
Chris: These people are experts Claudine
I was looking for Elisabeth among the people.........I like the focus of everyone smile
Chris: She was away that day Martin
great picture of the moth club Chris... i'm sure that Lisl would love to have been there....petersmile
Chris: Yes I'm sure she would Peter
