Lincolnshire Gallery

We intend the 'Lincolnshire Gallery' to feature an aspect of Lincolnshire's butterflies or moths using 20, or so, photos taken within the County by our Members. Every few weeks a new subject will be announced here! The Gallery this time is: 'Lincolnshire's Hawkmoths'. Lincolnshire has some 12 of the 17 UK species. The Death's Head Hawkmoth, however, has only been seen twice within the last 10 years!
