    Very cool, Wendy. They look so very exotic! I can't wait to see if you can catch their emergence!

    As you know I did pop Mrs Angle Shades into a jar & she laid eggs (that was on 15th Aug) ....... now the day of reckoning has arrived!! Lol

    Egg cases looking empty

    The bottom of the jar 

    Hard to get any detail yet as not in good position but didn't dare try to move eggs in case of damage, so impossibly tiny!

    Pleased to see they are finding their way onto young Bramble leaves (spend a fair amount of time cutting spiny ribs out for Oak Eggars so will just have to do more now!)

    No wonder you don't bring any home H! Lol

    Further news on this front is that I couldn't detect any movement in the pot & feared that the little wigglers had perished!  As the bramble leaves were very dry I tipped the whole lot out onto a sheet of kitchen paper & sifted through each one ... imagine my surprise to see these ...
