An Ambush of Tigers
A pride of Lions...a leap of Leopards....and an ambush of Tigers is the name given to a group gathered together. And I came across my own ambush of Tigers in the back garden this morning when I went to empty the moth trap. The Garden Tiger is my favourite moth because I still remember coming across one at a Scout Camp at Leek Wootten in Warkwickshire in the early 70s and being taken aback by its beauty. I hadn't seen any since then.....until a few weeks ago when they started turning up regularly in the moth trap....my cup runneth over!
