Atropos hatched overnight. I checked before bed and there was a black pupa, but this morning a nice fully formed Deaths Head Hawk-moth had emerged and was hanging on the tank side, fresh as a daisy.
I snatched a few blurry pics in the half light before work this morning, but hope for better tomorrow.
If you are passing and would like to see the moth, I will be having it on display at Howick Village hall tomorrow and Sunday from 10 am - 12 noon. There will be a small donation to the village hall coffers...
[I have tried to email everyone in my address book today and have frozen my emails in the process, so I'm stuck until I can get help.]
