Meet a Moth fly, or an Owl midge, or a Drain fly, or an Owl fly, a tiny creature that has a multitude of common names but whose 99 British species are so difficult to identify that I can’t give you an exact scientific name for this particular one, except to say that it’s a member of the Psychodidae family.

I was actually amazed that it stayed relatively still long enough for me to get so many photos – perhaps the cooler temperature this day had reduced its ability to flit actively about. Not so good for the fly, but a bonus for the photographer.
