Living fur and feathers…

Yesterday morning I found these three moths all of slightly different colouring sitting on a heavy stone roller.  The night before it had it rained a lot and the moths were well camouflaged. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to identify them.  I believe they were drying their coats after the rain.  It was very overcast but then the sun came through showing their texture beautifully.
