Not long back in from a sunset 7km run, with the first 5km under 30 minutes again.
It has been gradually warming up as the day went on; I tried sitting in my garden to read, but initially it was a little cool with a noticeable breeze blowing.
The coolness and wind was probably why I had a visitor in the shape of a cinnabar moth, a species not known for being a strong flyer. It settled in the creeper that hangs over my back wall, and I was able to get a decent shot of it.
I presume this species is named after the mineral of the same name, a vivid red ore of the element mercury. As with the mineral, the cinnabar moth is toxic to anything that tries to consume it.
Which is why I didn't try to eat it.
