And one not so huge moth = ^ _ ^ =
Last June I posted on this forum a picture or two of a Catterpillar that my friend and I almost trod on while on the Pavement or sidewalk, I could see by the colour of this chap that he was readyand looking for a place to pupate so I took him with me and decided to rear him through his last stage until our friend emerged as a moth.
This is something I have done a lot in the past as a kid, Rearing Copper Underwings, Angle Shades, Grey Dagger and Many a Lime Hawk moth.
this is a study of a not quite so huge a spectacular moth, but by UK standards its a good one
LIME HAWK MOTH
