Emperor Moths -Mating Pair

Emperor Moths -Mating Pair
Some of my contacts may notice I've been on an uploading frenzy the last few days, getting caught up and this series of photos is exactly why.

When we first saw the males diving and flitting around in this bush of nettles we had no idea exactly what was going on, until my other half saw the eyes on them and said to me those magic words..."they're emperor moths". As we moved in to get a closer look I couldn't tell what was going on it was a 'ball' of wings and legs and activity as the other males tried to barge in. I was literally covered from head to ankle in nettle stings after this and would dive into the stinging nettles in a heart beat given the chance again! lol

I really appreciate those of you that take the time to view my photos, and to comment when your motivated to do so, Thanks!!
