18 Dec 2014 AT LAST THE MOTH
In an email today, Peter Hendry confirmed that I have at last photographed a Cyana meyricki moth, the one that emerges from a cage built by the caterpillar out of its own hairs. I have filmed several of the cages in different locations and the actual caterpillar in the same place where, on 27 November, I photographed the moth. Having downloaded the image onto my hard drive yesterday, I had my doubts that it was a moth and was about to include it in my Other Fauna album, when I thought I should first check with Peter and sent him the photo. At the time I remember thinking that it might have been a Cyana meyricki moth. It flew away as I was on the point of taking another photo and I wasn’t sure my first effort was okay.
