Dance of the Ghost Moth

Sat outside with a cup of tea after I'd set the trap at about 10.45 p.m. My eye was taken by a moth hanging in the air just a foot or so above the ground dancing back and forth. A swish with the net and the twinkle-toed one was confirmed as male Ghost Moth. Several more then appeared and then some females too. My attempts to photograph the dancing moths failed but some then went to mate. Standing near the dancers they seemed to use me as a reference point, fascinating.
