Welcome to a little game I like to call Moth or Leaf.
We’re lucky in Anagach that there are so many different creatures – deer, capercaillie, rabbits, pheasants, woodpeckers, but also flies, ants, butterflies and moths.
You have to be pretty keen-eyed to spot them sometimes. They hide in plain sight – on leaves, under leaves, on heather – but are so well camouflaged that you could miss them on first glance.
At this time of year, all the fallen leaves and bits of bark seem to look like moths, complete with pine needles for antenna.
Here’s a wee gallery so you can see what I mean.
