AN­GLE SHADES

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

If the Art Deco move­ment did moths, it would have come up with the An­gle Shades. Oc­to­ber is to­wards the end of the year’s sec­ond com­ing of this un­mis­tak­able in­sect. It has long pointed wings with a ragged edge that re­calls a dessi­cated, crum­pled leaf. To fur­ther strengthen the moth’s ap­proach to cam­ou­flage, its wings are del­i­cately rip­pled with green, brown and mauve. This ex­quis­ite moth never fails to ex­cite.
