    It is already H but all in French of course ... great pics though!   Good to know someone famous!!

    Your moth is a beauty ... currently waiting for my Emperors to emerge after overwintering in my shed ... there are four hopefully viable pupae in butterfly house on dining table ... one is out of it's cocoon & wiggling well!

  • Congratulations on the publication of the book, Hazel. After five years hard work it must make you feel proud to see your name as co-author.
    The moth (Emperor?) is beautiful. Sadly, I've never seen one. If I was a bird I would think twice before attacking it with those four eyes staring at me. LOL

    Sorry Wendy, but forgot to explain that the second half of the page is about Antoines "Catalogue for Deux-Sèvres", which is on free download. Ours is tied to the Museum for now, probably until they sell most of the books & break-even!

    I don't suppose your Emperors will be long now, but mine was quite an early suprise one morning last week.

    Best wishes

    Thanks TJ & yes it does feel good, but a bit of an anti-climax after the book launch fiasco! The Emperor Moth is lovely & although a bit smaller, prettier than the Giant one in my view. The colours are so rich.

    Thanks too to Nigel & all the forumites who've shown interest in the Moth thread over the years, especially Wendy, who has taken it to ever increasing heights with her caterpillars.

    Best wishes

  • Very well done on your book Hazel, must be very satisfying to see it in print after all this time.
    The moths can be so beautiful I like to drop in from time to time and am glad I did today:-)

    Lot to learn

    Sad to report that the second one of this year has succumbed & never did know ID for sure ... always on the lookout though!
