Macro Monday: Droplets

Common Bird'sfoot Trefoil, Lotus comiculatus

Red Clover, Trifolium pratense

This Grass Emerald, Pseudoterpna pruinata, has been living in the Grass and Sea Bindweed, and I see it daily when I go out through the gate.
Yesterday, it fluttered up from the grass into the wind as soon as I came 'round the corner of the house (10metres away!) and landed on the leaves of the Bindweed again. This morning the same. And this afternoon it flew up into the rain and flew onto the drainage of the gutter. I'd have gone hiding underneath the leaves, but then I'm human and not a Moth. One of these lovely Moths I caught in the kitchen this week, and I wonder how many are living here.

Out in the open and in the rain, was this gorgeous Insect. (getting heavier at this time) It kept crawling about the wet undergrowth. I'd love to know its ID.
