I had a look at the moth footage I shot on 21 February which confirmed the feeling I had at the time of filming; that I couldn’t believe what my eyes were seeing. I thought I was capturing the underside of the moth’s folded wings, but I was actually recording their outer surface. I had never seen such patterns on a moth. They resembled individual block prints on a textile or a pattern covered by a green glaze on a precious ceramic artefact.
