WHAT THE...
Fairy moths belong to the family Adelidae and their most remarkable feature is probably these insane long antennae. I photographed this one in Sherwood Forest while working with the Sherwood Forest Trust, after almost one hour following them, looking for a clean background and a perspective that highlighted the massive antennae.
