About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

  1. Butterflies are colourful, but moths have their own fascination and beauty.

  4. This is why you have a trap! ❤ Aren't they fascinating and the twiggy fellow is an absolute delight! I am always amazed at how much there is to wonder about in nature when we get the chance to stop and see what is out there. I've never forgotten the sense of amazement I had when I opened my door one morning to see an Emperor Gum Moth attached to it. She was a purpley-golden colour with beautiful markings and measured easily 15cm across, maybe more – just stunning!

    Always great fun, and for those of you who are amazed at the colours of some of them, thinking that Butterflies are colourful and moths are not, there is a simple explanation.
    The correct answer to the question, What is the difference between a Butterfly and a Moth? is – there isn’t any.
    All that has happened is that a number of families of, mostly diurnal, lepidoptera have been called butterflies. Whilst the other families have been called moths. There are no characteristics that are unique to ‘butterflies’, and none unique to ‘moths’.
    Just look at them and enjoy.

  7. What a good selection of moths. Opening up the trap is one of the greatest pleasures of a summer morning!
