Approximately an hour ago, I heard scrabbling coming from the plastic container on my desk, and lo and behold, the Death’s Head Hawkmoth that had been pupating for the last couple of weeks, finally emerged!
A rare treat.
I draped a cloth over the side to allow the moth purchase to climb out.
It maneuvered into a position where it could hang to allow its wings to dry.
It is still there as I type. Once it is ready for it’s maiden flight I shall release it into the night.
Hope you enjoy the rest of the photos.
