26th May 2012 ... נחמד לראות אותך

I first started "mothing" in mid 2009, and some of the vernacular names caught my imagination.
None more so than Setaceous Hebrew Character .... wonderful !
The warm evenings continue and look like remaining for the week ahead and I'm sure many trappers are struggling to keep up with their blog posts, unlike a week ago when we were scratching for something post.
The blog title is in Hebrew and means, "Nice to see you", (courtesy of "Google Translate") which I thought was quite apt for a brace of "year first" Setaceous Hebrew Characters found in the trap this morning.
