Nature in a summer's evening.

 

Beyond the hedgehog the pink betony raises its tall aquare stems on which, here and there, cuckoo-spit  insects have made their coverings of foam.

 

These creatures suck the sap of plants, some of which they spit out and so live in a moist house of their own making.

 

On one of the betony leaves a female drinker moth is resting,and to her flies the male.

 

His deeply-combed antennae have helped him sense her wherabouts.

 

Other moths can just be seen as specks against the dark depths of the wood.
