Close by was a small swarm of moths with long, long antennae. Such moths are called Longhorns, and there are a couple of common species. The males' antennae hold the sense organs that detect the female's pheromones. They would not hold still long enough for a photo, but the female was there too, resting on a leaf.

Near the swarm, also on a leaf, something just caught my eye ...

That wasn't all - as I was walking away I saw a small horde of Dock Bugs among the foliage.

So there is plenty of activity in the undergrowth!
