PHOTOGRAPHS REQUIRED OF MACRO SPECIES
One of the aims of this web site is to show photographs of all of the moth species recorded in Caithness and your help in achieving this aim would be appreciated. The only stipulation is that the actual moth photographed must have been observed or captured in Caithness. If you have a digital photo that you think could be used on the site please contact the County Moth Recorder. The copyright of all photographs used will be acknowledged but payment cannot be offered.

The idea of the photograph is to try to show the principle identification features of the moth and required photographs fall into two types:

  • Images of moth species which currently do not have an image on the species page. These are listed below and can be basic "record" shots like many on other pages.
  • Images to replace the existing "record" images which show the moth in natural surroundings while displaying the identification features. Eric Maughan's evocative picture of an Herald feeding on Brambles is a good example of this type
