Mostly Moths 2019

  • Dug them out today H & split into two pots with fresh food (keeps drying out so quickly in this heat) , came across loads of shed skins & several quite advanced caterpillars ... have a couple of hurried pics to post but couldn't do a head count as was called away on urgent mission!

    My trusty paintbrush measures 10x10mm

    The next two are not dead caterpillars! Lol

    Still came across a little straggler when I went through the dead leaves again!!

  • The skins look more interesting than the caterpillars! LOL They are amazing though.

  • Day 24 for the Garden Tiger larvae ... left them for a couple of days to shed skins but time for a clean out ...
    Had to cut this footage short to round up the escapees! Lol
