User's notes

Okay so this is another upside down moth so I am probably not expecting you to know what it is to species level. But I have included a very blurry photo of the upper surface if that helps. These things always perch upside down on something fairly low down. Trying to take photos from underneath is nearly impossible ... they either fly away, the photo is blurry or you just get a very interesting view of the sky.
