Lead, astray!.....22/03

According to the books, the Lead-coloured Drab feeds predominately on Aspen...........I wasn't aware there was any in the area, so I can only assume he must be lost! The photo below shows the diagnostic 'feathered' antennae, which without any doubt distinguishes this from the similar Clouded Drab. It is also slightly smaller and more round in the wing tip. All the same, I almost emptied him along with the others!
Other than this revelation just 2 Clouded Drab, 3 Hebrew Character and a Common Quaker on a cold, clear night.
