Ghost Moth

After Steve's picture of a female, I thought I'd add a picture of the male, since it looks so different. As the largest member of the Swift family in the UK it is strange species, having no mouth parts and therefore not able to feed as an adult insect. This one was caught on June 10th 2009, although I did catch a male on June 18th this year (but didn't photograph it)
