An Ambush of Tigers

A pride of Lions...a leap of Leopards....and an ambush of Tigers is the name given to a group gathered together. And I came across my own ambush of Tigers in the back garden this morning when I went to empty the moth trap. The Garden Tiger is my favourite moth because I still remember coming across one at a Scout Camp at Leek Wootten in Warkwickshire in the early 70s and being taken aback by its beauty. I hadn't seen any since then.....until a few weeks ago when they started turning up regularly in the moth trap....my cup runneth over!

This Sallow Kitten added another touch of class!


  1. Stunning creatures Steve. I'll be on the lookout for these.

  2. Hi Christian - they're pretty amazing. The trap's out again and I'm hoping for a few more tomorrow! :-)
