The Great Emergence!
Burnet moths are now on the wing. The papery cocoons that we saw on the grasses are now empty, although you can see the black shell of the pupa that the adult moth has emerged from. These day-flying moths seem to be everywhere in The Wildlife Trust office garden, flying around, feeding from the flowers and...err...mating. Their metallic colouring looks fantastic in the sunshine and makes for some good photo opportunities.
